Notes - Rare player shirt believed to have been prepared for Mendienta in the UEFA Cup Group D match against AZ Alkmaar played at Alkmaarderhout on the 24 November 2005. The stylish midfielder was not called up for this game where his teammates earn a point after a 0-0 draw. Boro finished top of the group and had a superb campaign in the competition that took them to reach the final, defeating on the way Stuttgart, Roma, Basel and Steaua București before Sevilla ended their dream in Eindhoven. In his 3rd season at the Riverside, Mendieta suffered injuries which forced him to miss 35 of the 64 games that Boro played. The side also finished 14th in the Premier League and reached the FA Cup Semi-Finals.
