Gaizka Mendieta is one of the most iconic players in the history of Valencia CF. Fifteen years after his memorable goal in the 1999 Cup final, the Basque former player wanted to visit the Mestalla Forever Tour and share with all the fans his best memories. Mendieta says that Mestalla 'gave everything' in his ten years at the club. His picture is present in different parts of the stadium: 'It is important that players know where they are coming too, and the importance of the shirt'. Mendieta also signed his photo in the tunnel. He remembers with pride his favourite goal, in the 1999 cup final which began a new "winning dynamic" at the club. Valencia CF wanted to pay tribute to the winners of that cup with the #GolMendieta, campaign that will reward with the most original and funniest imitation of Gaizka's mythical goal with two season tickets.
