Notes - Rare player shirt believed to have been prepared for Topal in the Champions League Group C match against Rangers played at the Ibrox Stadium on the 20th October 2010. Valencia arrived at this game with 3 points after a win over Bursaspor and a defeat against Manchester United. The game would finish in a 1-1 draw after the local midfielder Edu was in charge of the goals on the night, as he scored a header for the Gers and also equalised the game with an own goal. Topal completed the full game and made 4 other appearances in the competition with Valencia reaching the Round of 16 as well as the 3rd place in La Liga. The Turkey international midfielder only lasted a couple of seasons at Mestalla before moving back to his native country, this time to play for Fenerbahçe. It is believed the kitman misapplied the patches as they are on the opposite sleeves.
