Come, see and leave Athletic


Javi Martón’s situation at Athletic changed yesterday afternoon. The striker from Navarre from Real B, the top scorer of the rojiblanco team in the preseason, reserved a place and number in the first team of the Bilbao club. His name, with the number 24 on his back, appeared with the other lions chosen by Valverde to carry out this new campaign; but yesterday, unexpectedly, his assignment to Mirandés was announced after training in the morning in Lezama.

The possibility that he first considered joining Bilbao Athletic was ruled out in the course of his training sessions with the first team. The rojiblanco coach himself changed his mind after seeing the performance offered by this 24-year-old footballer in his several appearances with the lions. Martón, in fact, became Athletic’s top scorer with three goals in the preseason. The appearances of the coach from Gasteiz about the role of this newcomer in Lezama has changed significantly.

change of mind

Valverde pointed out, just to remind, that the rojiblanca pre-season has just started that the Navarrese striker will have difficulty staying in the Athletic first team. “We have players in that position. Villaliber came; there is Guruzeta; Raúl too; Iñaki… We know that the goal is something that is appreciated and you have to have, but we cover that position”, the coach from Gasteiz said for the first time about the now striker of Mirandés.

His statements a few weeks later at the end of Athletic’s match against Eibar in Las Llanas clearly reflect the change experienced in relation to the thoughts of the coach of the Bilbao team about this footballer. “We have to assess if Martón will stay,” Valverde himself acknowledged at the end of the Sestao cross, a cross where the Navarrese striker signed his third goal so far in the preseason.

Athletic, however, surprised yesterday afternoon by announcing that they had reached an agreement with Mirandés for the loan of Javi Martón. The Navarrese striker who arrived at Lezama this summer from Real B already has a record and number for the rojiblanco’s first team and has even been called up against Real Madrid, Osasuna and Betis, the lions’ rivals so far in the Liga , although it has yet to debut. . From the Bilbao club, it was finally decided that he would leave Lezama for Anduva, although Amorebieta, who plays in the same category, also wanted him.

“Athletic Club and Club Deportivo Mirandés have reached an agreement for their center forward Javier Martón (24 years old) to play on loan at Anduva until the end of the season. The rojiblanco club reserves the option to play the Navarrese attacker in the winter market”, said a note released from Ibaigane.

From Lezama, it is understood that Martón, who arrived for free at Athletic after his period in the Real branch, will continue his development in LaLiga Hypermotion, the second category of state football. “He came strengthened from the preseason with Valverde, who made his debut in the friendly against Necaxa scoring two goals, to which must be added the one he scored against SD Eibar in Las Llanas”.
