Bio
Centre-back Iñigo Martinez is the leader of coach Marcelino Garcia Toral’s defence. He arrived at Athletic Club during the 2018 winter transfer window for a club-record fee, and since then his whole-hearted defensive performances have seen him become a San Mamés idol. 

The Ondarroa native was signed by Athletic to replace the departing Aymeric Laporte. Iñigo is very talented with the ball at his feet. Quite often the left-footed central defender will play precise long-balls from the back in order to launch stinging counter-attacks. But most importantly, he’s a defender at heart. He reads the game well, organises the players around him and never shirks a challenge. 

Iñigo rarely misses a match and since joining Athletic Club he’s already racked up 125 official appearances. His first goal for Athletic was a back-heel strike in the 1-0 win against Real Betis on June 20, 2020. 

What’s more, consistent and effective showings at the heart of the Athletic defence have seen him feature regularly in the Spanish national team squad.
