There, Carlos Gurpegui, who had been their captain for a good part of their trajectories, gave them frames of their own dedicated and jerseys, with a significant plaque where could be readen: GUTAKO BAT BETIRAKO, ESKERRIK ASKO.

The three climbed into the lively stands and vibrated with the homage of the fans as the team followed the memorable moment from the turf. As Susaeta himself declared at the end of the farewell: “Our people are different. The three of us were able to experience it today and it was a joy.
