Gaizka Larrazabal will be part of the first team of Athletic Club for the next two seasons. The Bilbao winger sees this way rewarded his regularity and his performance in Bilbao Athletic, where he has played so far this season 31 games and above all has uncovered his goalscoring version achieving 9 goals.

He finished his juvenile stage at Danok Bat to play his first senior year in Zamudio’s ranks in 2ªB. Despite the relegation of the Txorierri team, his performance took him tor Lezama to join the second red-and-white team. The team was coached by Gaizka Garitano at that time, and now he will also be his coach in the first team.

Gaizka is the son of Aitor Larrazabal, one of the historic names of the entity, eighth player with more games played with Athletic. Curiously, there are not many cases in which father and son have worn the jersey of the first team. The last example was in the goal with Carmelo and Andoni Cedrún. The previous was that of Luis Uribe, a member of Athletic who won the first three leagues, and Ignacio Uribe, a legendary player of the “Once aldeanos” in the 1950s.

It has been much more common in Athletic that brothers coincide and even other degrees of kinship. In more recent times, we have the example of Mikel Kortina, grandson of Roberto Bertol; there are cases of uncles and nephews like Rípodas and Tiko or Ander and Gaizka Garitano or even cousins like Adrien Goñi and Iker Muniain.
