Gaizka Mendieta



Gaizka Mendieta
Mendieta has led Valencia on their fine run in this year's Champions League with his array of skills and vision.

Joined the club from Castellon at the age of 18 and is a firm favourite with the fans having been a vital member of the team for almost a decade.

He has a habit of scoring crucial and spectacular goals for Valencia but his international career has struggled to take off.

A dispute with previous national coach Javier Clemente cemented his non-selection but Camacho is far keener to utilise the midfielder's skills.

After a marvellous season in 1998/99, he earned a long-awaited Spanish debut in March 1999 as a substitute in a European Championship qualifier against Austria and his first international goal came in the last minute of a 9-0 win against San Marino.
