Today, 29th January 2018, the Liga Profesional de Fútbol (LPF) has certified to Athletic Club that the player Aymeric Laporte has met the requirements demanded in the applicable legislation for the valid unilateral resolution of the employment contract that bound him to our Club. Said certification indicates that the player has unilaterally shown his will to terminate the contractual relationship that bound him since 2009-2010 season and that the amount of compensation established in the contract has been deposited.
Athletic Club would like to thank the player for his dedication during the time he has been with the club.
In this sense, Athletic Club will continue to work so that being part of its first team remains the maximum personal and professional aspiration of each and every one of the players, representatives of a unique sporting philosophy and project.
Our future is built on a choice freely adopted in the past and that only carries a sense of pride. Hundreds of players who have considered our first team as their aspiration have served this election; and this bet is found both in those who have remained in Athletic throughout their sporting career due to their own desire, as well as in those who have had an unwanted exit resulting from the technical decisions of each moment. Players protagonists, in short, of a genuine personal and collective commitment with which each of the people that make up Athletic can not but feel connected.
President Josu Urrutia will offer a press conference in the coming days, at a date and time to be determined.
