What happened the day Vivian debuted at Athletic?


This season, I’ll be looking for intrastories related to the day current players made their debuts playing in the Athletic men’s first team. Everyone, at least to date, has had time with the elite. Some more, others less. I think there may be names that catch your attention related to the premiere of each star. The established order is the numbers.

No one has number two now. We move on to number three, which is Dani Vivian’s. The defender made his Athletic debut on August 16, 2021. A Monday. The one from Vitoria-Gazteiz made his Martínez Valero debut against Elche.

It was the first day of the League of that 2021-2022 season. It was a summer where Yeray was injured and Marcelino, the rojiblanco coach at the time, did not trust Unai Nuñez. On that hot August night it was Iñigo Martínez, who is now in Barcelona, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​avins it that he was wearing the number 28 in the center back area, then wearing the number 28. The Argentine now plays for Granada.

Vivian came from a loan at Mirandés, where he even captained the team. The centre-back has played 69 official matches for Athletic (not counting his possible participation in yesterday’s clash against Getafe). He scored three goals, in this case also without knowing if he scored or not against Bordalás’ team. His scoring debut came on the fourth matchday of the season in his debut against Mallorca in San Mamés. A free kick taken by Muniain was headed home to beat Manolo Reina.

This is a day where there are also debuts. For example, that of Julen Aguirrezabala. But we will look for their intrastories when the time comes. The two exited a mixed zone after the game.

On and off the field

Vivian’s way of expressing herself has always caught my attention. Clear, direct, strong, uncomplicated, just like in the field. It will always be said, and it’s true, that he seems more veteran than he is. Another capable captain. By the way, Cordero Vega, like Simón’s debut day, crossed paths with Vivian’s debut. He didn’t get a yellow.

In the rest of the sport, that day Vivian debuted, news on the national front page in Sports World that, for example, Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 4-2 in the debut of the league and in the era after Messi. with double goals from Piqué, the Kings League player, Braithwaite (cover photo with Memphis Depay, almost nothing) and Sergi Roberto. The 2021 Vuelta a España was also held. The Picón Blanco stage was held on Monday. Taaramäe won that day.

I referred to Dani Vivian along these lines last season as a golden loan. Its performance caught my attention. He has been called upon to be a great center back for the Bilbao club in the coming seasons. It’s not complicated, he’s professional, but I don’t know if he’ll reach a level, for example, to be international in Spain, because he was in some pools last season. It won’t be something from another Thursday.
