Alex Berenguer “I will give everything for this shirt”
One day after being announced as Athletic’s newest signing, Alex Berenguer was included in the squad list for the team’s trip to Alavés. The 25-year-old trained with his teammates on Saturday afternoon and could make his debut at Mendizorrta. Berenguer looks forward to starting his career in Bilbao and hopes to make an impact as soon as possible.
“I’m proud to sign for Athletic and wear these colors,” Berenguer told Athletic TV on Saturday. “It’s a great club and I will give everything for this shirt.” When asked about what he can bring to the team, Berenguer highlighted his attacking capabilities and how he’s grown during his time with Torino.
“Surely Italian football helped me experienced another world and a different type of football. It helped me improve physically and now I feel like a more complete player than when I left Osasuna. The qualities I have are dribbling and speed. I work every day to improve.”
Berenguer is already adjusting to live at Athletic. “I’ve spoken with Iñaki Williams and Iker Muniain who sent me messages,” he said before joining the squad in training. “I see that this is a very close group, a family, and I’m excited to join the group right away.” Alex Berenguer will be officially presented as a new signing on Tuesday and has signed a contract with Athletic through 2024.
