Under the rain with which Bilbao woke up today, Athletic Club’s first team has exercised behind closed doors in the facilities of Lezama. After the training session, Iñigo Martínez has talked about zurigorri news in a press conference. The defender is satisfied after recovering from the physical issues that made him miss the league start: ‘I’ve been starting badly for some years because of injuries and this time it hasn’t been easy because in the end I had to be out of the pitch for a long time. So now I’m trying to enjoy and bring the best of me to the team‘.
In the collective plane, however, the kick-off could not have been better for the red-and-white, who on Friday face in Mallorca the fourth league fixture: ‘We all like to start like this. Now the difficult thing is to maintain this moment, to continue in that line in which we are. The fans are supporting us every day and our only objective is to win the next match. It’s going to be very complicated because Mallorca has just gone up to First Division and has a lot of desire, but we have full confidence in our chances. We’ll go out on the pitch to win, which is what we have to do‘.
Iñigo Martínez also referred to the last call-up for the Spanish national team, in which his teammate Unai Núñez has been summoned: ‘I’m 100% happy for Unai. He deserves it because every time he has played he has done it wonderfully. He is a teammate with whom I spend a lot of time in the changing room and I’m very happy that he has been called and that he has been able to make his debut. Personally I knew that it would be difficult to join the list because I had not played the two previous matches. I’m calm because I know that if things go well here, I’ll have my chances to return to the Spanish national team‘.
