“With me there was an agreement, in Rayo nothing was signed. Not being shot, they stopped negotiating with Rayo. They will think that Urzaiz and I are two forwards with the same characteristics and it will not be interesting. Only Zubi (Andoni Zubizarreta, Athletic’s sports director at the time) contacted me afterwards. I’ve never thanked him publicly and this is a good time to do so.”
This is how Jon Pérez, Bolo, explained to MD a few days ago his possible failed return to Athletic discipline as a player for the Vallecano club. The coach of Bilbao has now influenced this response to a loan pending with one who was in his time goalkeeper for Athletic and Barça, among other clubs.
Zubi and Bolo met on Monday at an event organized by Danok Bat on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its foundation. Both acted as speakers with Jon Aspiazu, Txirri and Gotzon Astoreka, president of this prestigious club from Biscay at the youth football level, with journalist Nika Cuenca as moderator.
The pending issue with Bolo’s side when Zubi was at Athletic has definitely been fixed. They said, yes, that the goalkeeper expected the striker from the beginning. Our style!
