Oihan Sancet Named One Of UEFA’s Top 50 Rising Stars
Lezama is the past, the present, and the future of Athletic. The club’s unrivaled devotion to youth development has brought tremendous success and pride as each year new players realize their dream of reaching the first team. Over the past 18 months no starlet has demanded as much attention as Oihan Sancet who has already made his debut and is on the cusp of earning a permanent place at San Mamés.
After being a key player for Spain’s U19 squad, Sancet recently made his debut for the U21 team as well and has since been recognized as one of the best young footballers on the continent. The 19-year-old has been named to UEFA’s list of the Top 50 U21 Rising Stars and the recognition is fully deserved.
Capable of playing anywhere in the midfield, Sancet has played his best football in an attacking role and is exceptional at creating chances, dribbling, and shooting. The Lezama product has split time between the first team and Bilbao Athletic this season but has already managed to make 6 appearances in La Liga and could make his Copa del Rey debut next weekend against Sestao River. This summer, Oihan Sancet will be fully promoted and ready to fight for a key role in the squad.
