Athletic Club has presented in Lezama the strategic lines of the ladies’ sports project. For the first time the first team has its own structure, that is to say, it is totally independent of the four youth teams that the club has.
The sports director, Joseba Agirre, did not want to forget the effort made by the club with the ladies’ reserve team as all players have a professional record. He also pointed out that this year ‘a step forward has been taken at nutritional level‘ as the players have breakfast and eat at Lezama. In addition, Agirre has recalled that the Primera Iberdrola has 106 foreign players of which 43 have competed in the last World Cup in France: ‘It is a record number and therefore we have to give value to what we do, because they are the teams we face and more than once we have beaten them‘.
Moreover, the evolution of women’s football in the territory is remarkable as Agirre pointed out: ‘We have 100 players in Lezama. Working on the base is fundamental: having a lot of players to choose from is a relief. We have to try to work with different bodies to increase the number of players in Bizkaia. It’s not enough to be good, we have to be number one and we don’t let anyone get away. We have to be the best trainers and use our resources which are the best‘.
For his part, Iñaki Alonso, the head of the club’s formative football stressed ‘have clear where we want to get having clear from where we started. For this Athletic Club is developing a strategic plan a few months ago. A comprehensive process and worked in a shared way “that will provide a roadmap‘.
As for the area of methodology, its manager Juan Luis Fuentes underlined the importance of long-term training. ‘We should not work in the short term or independently. The formation will be gradual and we will work in a common way. Everything is aimed at improving the player from the moment she enters Lezama. We have a certain style of play, but we do not close the door to work within the training of players other systems. We don’t want to restrict the formation and we think it’s good to try and vary‘.
