Iker Muniain's involvement in the match against Getafe CF sees the current captain go joint second with club legend Txetxu Rojo in Athletic Club's all-time appearance maker rankings. The clash with the Madrid-based outfit was Iker's 541st for the club, his 420th appearance in LaLiga.
The no.10 has played 56 matches in the Copa, four in the Spanish Super Cup and 61 in Europe (54 in the Europa League and seven in the Champions League). Having moved level with Rojo, only iconic goalkeeper Jose Angel Iribar has more Athletic appearances.
The playmaker has taken 15 seasons to reach this milestone. That statistic speaks volumes about Iker's longevity and his importance to his boyhood club. It is also worth remembering he spents many months on the sidelines due to two serious knee injuries.
