Iñigo Martinez Visits Lezama And Will Report To Preseason Training On Monday
When Athletic’s preseason training started last Thursday only four players were absent. Iñiog Martinez, Unai Simón, Unai Nuñez, and Oihan Sancet were all given extended vacations due to being on international duty. The players will report to Lezama later than the rest of the teammates, but for some footballers it’s hard to stay away.
On Thursday Martinez visited Lezama and even worked out in the indoor facilities and with the ball on the field. The defender then watched the training session, paying close attention to the instruction from manager Gaizka Garitano. Martinez didn’t join his teammates for training, but the club has officially announced that he will do so on Monday.
In addition, Oihan Sancet was discarded from the final squad list for Spain U19 which means that his international duty has ended. Athletic announced that the 19-year-old would immediately start training, but Sancet was not at Lezama on Thursday and will likely return sometime in the next few days. Unai Nuñez and Unai Simón are both expected to join their teammates when Athletic leaves for Germany on 21 July.
