A new Athletic fan club has been inaugurated in the name of Mikel Vesga in the midfielder's home city of Vitoria-Gasteiz. Gathered at the Bar Iradier, the player, along with his friends and family, were there to see a long-held dream turned into reality.
A couple of days before Los Leones' fixture at Mendizorrotza, the Peña Mikel Vesga was officially started on Wednesday evening.
The launch party was attended by Vesga and his current teammates Dani García, Óscar de Marcos and Dani Vivian. In addition to the first-team footballers, former Lions Andoni Goikoetxea and Jose Mari Igartu were there, together with Manolo Delgado and club director Egoitz Begoña.
