“I always wanted to be like Muniain, an absolute legend”


Unai Gómez, 20 years old, is experiencing his first season as a lion, although in the last stage of the last season he has entered the first team dynamic. His debut, in any case, coincided with this Liga debut against Real Madrid. He scored his first goal against Betis and recently renewed his contract with Athletic until June 30, 2028.

“Everything is being very special for me this season. The time has come for me to see my dream come true. Everyone at home was very happy. ‘Look what I’ve achieved’, I tell myself many times. Something I couldn’t have imagined ten years ago,” he said.

When talking about his Athletic references, the Bermeo native points out that “especially Iker Muniain, who is an absolute legend of the club. I have always wanted to be like him, since I was a child I always who is paying attention. Ander Herrera also had a big impact on me the year we reached the finals of the Europa League. I really liked Javi Martínez. I don’t want to leave anyone out, but everyone in the locker room. Iñaki, Raúl, De Marcos… All great players. I pay a lot of attention to them, I try to learn.”
