Iñigo Vicente “The Best Thing For Me Was To Leave Athletic”
It’s been over a week since Iñigo Vicente left Athletic to join Mirandés on loan. The Lezama product even featured for a few minutes in Thursday’s friendly against his boyhood club, but was formally presented by Mirandés earlier today. Vicente explained that it was important to go out on loan to have regular minutes this year.
“The best thing for me was to leave Athletic because I wasn’t going to have all the minutes I needed to continue growing. Coming to Mirandés was a good option for me. There were other options, but I talked to Chema (Technical Secretary) and Iraola and I didn’t doubt that this was the best place for me.”
Vicente will now have the opportunity to test himself in the Segunda where he will be pushed more than ever before. “Moving up a level was something that I needed”, the starlet stated. “I’ve been coming here for two years with Bilbao Athletic and I was always impressed by the fans at Anduva. I’m happy for this new challenge and promise to try to give many joys to Mirandés and the fans.” Iñigo Vicente will wear number 17 for Mirandés this season.
