Bio
Among Athletic Club fans, Gernika-born striker Asier Villalibre is better known as ‘The Buffalo’. It is a tribute to his physique and powerful running style. Watching our bearded beast bossing his way through defences is a sight to behold. 

But Asier is more than a battering ram, throughout his time at Athletic Club he has demonstrated that he is an astute and skilful striker.

Villalibre is deceptively quick and a fine finisher. His goal against Granada CF at San Mamés last season was a perfect example of the danger he poses when given space in the box.

Asier made his Athletic Club first-team debut against SD Eibar back in 2016, but took a while to find his feet. The striker had loan spells with CD Numancia, Real Valladolid and Lorca FC before coming home and finding his best form with Bilbao Athletic. 

In 2018-19, he scored a record 23 goals for the reserve team, beating the 22-goal record Patxi Salinas set in 1984. 

Asier got his maiden Athletic Club first-team goals with a brace against Sestao River in the Copa del Rey. He followed this up with his first LaLiga goal in a match against RCD Espanyol. 

2020-21 was a year of steady improvement, with the forward regularly leading the line with tireless performances. His strength and ability in the air make Asier a handful for any defender.

Now that Asier is a fully-established member of the first team, Athletic Club fans are hoping that he will keep improving and score plenty more goals.
