There is a whole year ahead to enjoy Aritz Aduriz, who has decided to hang up his boots at the end of this season, which will be his eleventh and last as a lion. This was made public at the press conference after the training in Lezama.
Aduriz, ten games out of his 400 in Athletic Club’s first team, with 171 goals scored in an unforgettable last decade, is still present in the team. He has decided to launch this message a week before the start of the league to focus all his efforts on the competitive level. He will turn 39 in February, but he has the illusion of a newcomer.
It is not a question of reviewing all his achievements, which are many, because the player from San Sebastian has not left, as he showed the day before by scoring a goal to Mirandés. But it is inevitable to remember the four goals in the Barcelona Supercup, a feat that led the Club to their only men’s title in this century just four years ago. It faces its challenge of the last Athletic-Barça league in San Mames. Huge Aduriz!
