The Eduardo Berizzo era is about to begin. The new manager will report to Lezama with his staff on Monday to start putting things in order for the beginning of preseason training and the players are due to return to the facilities one week later on 9 July. In the meantime, most of the players are away on vacation and enjoying their time off. However, there are still a few that have stayed around and are already working on their own before training even begins.

On Thursday El Desmarque Bizkaia released a video on social media that showed captain Markel Susaeta training on his own at Lezama. The 30-year-old is hoping to play a crucial role under Berizzo in the coming campaign and is making sure that he is staying in top shape. At the same time, Gorka Guruzeta has been at the facilities training on a daily basis. He underwent hernia surgery a few weeks ago and is working hard to guarantee that he is ready for the start of preseason.

Of course, the fact that some players are already training while others are still on vacation is a personal choice. The football season is long and very demanding so the players certainly deserve some time off to unwind and make memories with their friends and family. Still, everyone will be reporting back to Lezama in 11 days which means that Athletic Club football is right around the corner.
