Yeray: “The situation that Iñigo has had to live through is not easy at all”

Iñigo Martínez was flirting with Barcelona during the summer, but in the end his offer was insufficient and he stayed in Bilbao for the last year of his contract. The culé club now proposes the signing, already free, in June, since there are still no advances for its renewal as rojiblanco. Sunday is a special day for him, since he visits the Camp Nou. “The situation that he has had to live through is not easy at all, I see him the same as always,” summarizes his partner Yeray. The central office always carries dangers: “We are a little more exposed, a small mistake has conceded goals to the rivals”, adds the Barakaldo defender. As now with Valverde the team acts more advanced “When they score a goal for us, we will appear in all the photos, We have accepted it and we want to play that way”. For the technician, the crash is also surrounded by morbidity.

Yeray was dragging discomfort in the adductor, but they are almost overcome. There is competition with Iñigo and Vivian, and quotes Paredes, “all four of us squeeze, on a day-to-day basis we have to keep improving and if you have to play, give your best”. Athletic is sixth, but they are not satisfied: “Individually and collectively we are very well, we want to have control, we want to take the initiative, trying to catch the ball and attacking is our hallmark”, deepens the 5, who enters nuances about the last three games in which they have not won: “We deserved to win against Sevilla, against Atlético the defeat and the draw against Getafe were not fair”.

He likes Valverde’s libretto more than Marcelino’s, as Simón recently pointed out. “I’ve had five coaches and they’re all different, I’m comfortable as we are, you take a lot of risks, you expose yourself to fast players overtaking you, you have to live with it, so far it’s going quite well,” Yeray is honest. Athletic hasn’t won at the Camp Nou since November 24, 2001, nor was Nico Williams born, and only Herrera knows what it’s like to win there. Add a total of 20 losses and 5 draws, and focused on the League, 17-3. “The statistics are worth little, you have to go and face it as one more, with maximum respect for the rival and trying to press up. We want to give a good image, of a team that goes to the Camp Nou to get the three points, not to get behind. We try to win as many games as possible”.

By the way, Yeray makes it clear that Morata was missing on Saturday in the disallowed goal against Atlético, “I don’t fall because I shoot or try to hit him, I stumble and fall”. I would prefer that Barcelona arrived with doubts and not after calming down with the 3.0 to Villarreal. He does not sign the current sixth place at the end of the season: “I see the team very well, I want to continue playing, enjoying myself away and at home, and giving joy to our fans”.
