THANK YOU SAN MAMES!!
  I don’t know where to start, there were so many emotional moments that make it complicated to list them. I continue reading the many messages you’ve all sent from different sources, cell phone, internet, Facebook, Twitter…There’s been a lot, it goes without saying that almost all of them moved me, and yeah, many with which fell a tear…  You guys are phenoms you know how to reach the heart!!! You can tell when something is said from deep inside…The same like when we say ATHLETIC, we say it with the soul. 
  To say goodbye to San Mames isn’t easy at all, I don’t know if in the world there is a place with as much feeling. We were all there, not just the people who were lucky enough to have been on the pitch, no, all of the supporters from every corner of the world, and of course all of those that have left us along the way and who showed us how to love Athletic. 
  The days before I was very nervous,  eager and impatient… To have the possibility to step in San Mames was already a luxury, but to do it the way I like the most, playing in the place where I had always dreamed and where I enjoyed every second I had been there was the best way to say THANK YOU…
  Thanks Athletic, for making me feel privileged and giving me the chance to wear this jersey since I was eight years old. Thanks to all of the coaches and employees for having helped me get so far. Thanks to all of the teammates from every category that I’ve been through. Thanks to my family who made everything possible so that I didn’t miss anything along the way and thank you to the supporters for making me so happy from the first day I stepped foot in San Mames until this last time and who let me enjoy every instant, every moment…
  Everything was so beautiful, from the first moment returning on the pitch, we were all together in the center and to sing and hear the Athletic hymn, together, united….Wow, the heartbeat was already at 1,000. A heart that didn’t stop beating at full speed until I left the locker room, went down the stairs and it was the moment to get out on the pitch to play, to enjoy, to take delight in San Mames and its people… A luxury that’s difficult to explain… I will never forget the ovation with which you all received me, within me runs an unstoppable force. 
  I enjoyed every moment, every run, every ball that I touched, that by luck were quite a few for how fast the time passed and yeah, I had it… I had a moment seconds before the end where I could have placed the best pin of my dream, SAN MAMES…But no, it didn’t go in and even though I have good thoughts, if it had gone in it’s possible that I would have given something and the heart would have been protected…
  It was also a pleasure to share a few moments with great myths of Athletic…There are many that could have played and all of them have to feel represented.  If Athletic has been strong it because of the Union and this has to be strengthened in this new stage…
  San Mames has been great, unique, unmatched… And it’s going to be the best father, that guides it’s son, SAN MAMES BARRIA, so that we continue enjoying, wanting, loving, a unique feeling… ATHLETIC
