Middlesbrough new boy Michael Reiziger insists he can add to his trophy haul despite passing up the chance to join Spanish champions Valencia.
The 31-year-old Dutchman turned his back on the Primera Liga and UEFA Cup winners, and the chance to play Champions League football next season, after
bringing an end to his seven-year spell at Barcelona.
Instead, he has decided to join Steve McClaren's blossoming Boro squad to test himself in the Barclaycard Premiership and enjoy the club's first-ever
European campaign after last season's breakthrough when they won the Carling Cup, the first major honour in their 128-year history.
Full-back Reiziger, who signed a two-year deal with the option of a third at the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday, is adamant that his ambitions can be
fulfilled on Teesside.
