Many fans complain about the deadlines set to carry out the elections

Aitor Elizegi seems to want to cling to the presidency of the Athletic. At least it is the feeling that many have seeing how the preparations are being carried out. It is necessary that the Assembly of the statutes take place, something that seriously conditions the date to dispute the elections.

The deadlines currently set place the elections for the presidency of the Athletic for next July 3. In other words, the team could start the preseason without a president, without a coach and with a whopping 35 players on the squad. A situation that angers the athleticzales a lot.

The elections point to July 3

Keep in mind that the season ends on May 22, almost two months before the preseason starts. His thing, if things were done well, would be to advance the elections as much as possible so that the next season starts with everything in place and without distractions for the squad.

As events are unfolding, there are many athleticzales angry with Elizegi for clinging to the presidency of Athletic. Let us remember that the chef is not running for re-election to run in the heat of the RFEF, where an important position awaits him in collaboration with UEFA.

Hence, many ask the president to speed up the situation. After all, everyone wants the best for Athletic. It is absurd to put obstacles in the way of a process like that of the next elections, which are promised to be very lively with the candidacies of Barkala and Arechabaleta as favorites.

But before the elections for the presidency of Athletic arrive, it will be necessary to see how the season ends. There are five hectic days left, in which Athletic will try to overcome the 4 points advantage that Villarreal has. And it is that the yellow ones mark the last square that gives access to Europe.

The signings of Arechabaleta to reach the presidency of Athletic

Iñaki Arechabaleta’s candidacy works on signings of the stature of Marcelo Bielsa and Ernesto Valverde. His sports advisers believe that the couple they can form would be a electoral trick to get to Ibaigane. Valverde would be the coach of the first team and Bielsa the absolute boss of Lezama.

Let’s remember how Bielsa’s departure from Athletic was forged and how he wanted to transform from the base. Bielsa fell in love with Athletic’s philosophy from the start. The Argentine is obsessed with training football and educating footballers in values ​​so that they can then compete at the highest level.

Bielsa could return from the hand of Arechabaleta

In this line, Marcelo Bielsa wanted to professionalize various areas of the club, to have the best prepared youth team in the world. As everywhere, when someone tries to change things, the well-to-do came out. Most of them plugged into the PNV who believe that Athletic is their txoko and that they can do and undo as they please.

Bielsa was a threat to all those who intend to live on Athletic without sticking a stick in the water. For this reason, public opinion began to be very harsh with Bielsa. That if they weren’t appropriate manners, that if he treated the press badly… Endless excuses to avoid talking about football. Because football-wise Athletic de Bielsa could not have detractors.

Precisely now that the elections are coming, both positions are clearly in conflict. Barkala is also close to the PNV and, therefore, intends not to complicate things too much at the club. However, Arechabaleta does want an Athletic that grows in all areas.

For this reason, the deputy CEO of Vocento has very clear ideas. Arechabaleta works on two absolutely differential signings. On the one hand, Bielsa, as a benchmark for Lezama. And on the bench of the first team Ernesto Valverde. Both are considered the best thing that has happened to Athletic in the modern era.
