Iñigo Córdoba “We’re Happy With The Result After Playing A Great Game”
Iñigo Córdoba has started all three games for Athletic since La Liga returned last week. As always, the winger has contributed immense work rate but was also able to contribute in attack during Saturday’s 1-0 win over Real Betis. Córdoba provided the assist for Iñigo Martinez who scored the only goal to take all three points.
“After the pandemic we had two draws and we wanted to win and rejoin the fight for Europe,” Córdoba told reporters. “We’re happy with the result after playing a great game.”
Athletic will now turn their attention to Tuesday’s trip to Camp Nou and a huge test against Barcelona. “They’re a complicated opponent and beating Betis before going there gives us a lot of morale to face the game.” Iñigo Córdoba will be expected to keep his place in the lineup, although with so many games close together Gaizka Garitano will have to rotate the team on some level.
