Salute to Joseba Etxeberria

19 05 2010

This week saw the retirement of Athletic Bilbao winger, Joseba Etxeberria. The former Spanish International had given 15 years service to Los Leones and even played the last year of his contract for free as a mark of gratitude to the Basque club. He signed off to a standing ovation in the weekend win over Deportivo.

With a nod to the legendary Athletic cantera policy, check out his send off game at the San Mames against what may well be the club’s entire youth system….

I wonder if Arsene Wenger was watching this, he’ll no doubt have a few signed up before pre season is out
