Bio

Among Athletic Club fans, Gernika-born striker Asier Villalibre is better known as ‘El Bufalo’. It is a tribute to his physique and powerful running style. Watching our bearded beast bash defenders about 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.

Asier made his Athletic Club first-team debut against SD Eibar back in 2016, but he 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 scored his 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.

In 2019-20, Villalibre got five goals in his 23 appearances. But now that Asier is a more settled member of the first team, Athletic Club fans are hoping that he will score even more goals to make up for the loss of legendary striker Aritz Aduriz.
