Christophe Atangana And Aritz De Miguel Leave Athletic On Loan
Lezama may very well be the top football academy for developing goalkeepers. Unfortunately, unlike other positions it’s very difficult to give regular minutes to every goalkeeper. Some are forced to leave on loan to have consistent playing time and moves are already being made for the upcoming season.
Christophe Atangana and Aritz de Miguel both spent time away on loan last season and Athletic Club have announced that the pair will do so again this year.
Atangana originally signed with Leioa before the start of last season but moved to Somorrostro in January. De Miguel replaced Atangana at Leioa and will continue there this year. Meanwhile, Atangana will be joining Getxo. The moves will become official on 1 August.
Spending the season on loan in the Segunda B with give both goalkeepers the chance to fight for starting roles and compete against strong competition. Christophe Atangana and Aritz de Miguel will be hoping to prove themselves while away and return to Athletic next season more prepared to fight for their futures at the club.
