“At Athletic today, we have an exciting challenge”


“At Athletic today, we have an exciting challenge”

The song already says: “There is nothing like Iribar”. The mythical Txopo yesterday took advantage of the presentation of the site of the San Mamés site where a statue can be seen in his honor to send encouragement to Valverde’s students before tonight’s cup duel against Osasuna”.

“Let it be clear what I want this statue to mean. This is what Athletic is, everything Athletic represents, starting with the fans, the players, the players… All right. We’re on the brink of reaching another final and that’s always exciting because to win you have to be there. We have an important challenge”, Txopo hinted to those present.

The Iribar statue is therefore one of the references to consider for all football fans who come to San Mamés. The work as a tribute to the legendary Athletic goalkeeper is located in an emblematic point around the rojiblanco stadium. There is no need to access the interior of the field to witness it.

The mayor of Bilbao, Juan Mari Aburto, the president of Athletic, Jon Uriarte, and Iribar himself presented yesterday the exact location where the sculpture will be built as a tribute to Txopo. “The place chosen could not be better: at the foot of San Mamés, at the point of the esplanade that meets the street of Licenciado Poza and next to the street of Luis Briñas. A privileged space for being a transit area frequented by rojiblanca fans on their pilgrimage to San Mamés”, explained those responsible for this election.
