Jon Uriarte: “It’s a bit sad that the club has become politicized because Athletic doesn’t deserve that”

Ythe Jon Uriarte’s project for Athletic It will be revealed this Wednesday afternoon through a video on RRSS. But the Izan Athletic candidate took advantage of the day before to offer details of what the plan will be if he wins the elections on June 24. He also did not ignore some criticism from his opponents. “It is a bit sad that the club has become politicized. Athletic does not deserve that. Maybe they see us as a threat to the establishment.”, he explained Tuesday night on Radio Nervión.

The midnight road gave a athletic sports project note. “She is generating a lot of expectation and we don’t want to destroy her. We have been in many places in the world trying to learn from other types of sports schoolswho do things differently from what is done in Lezama, where things are not done so badly either. Lezama works, but every four years he is the favorite target. If we go to the data, the men’s and women’s teams are nourished by the quarry. Instead, when you travel to different places and visit schools with the specialists, everyone tells you that the level is impressive, in fact many tell you that they were inspired by Lezama. But The world is changing faster and faster and we cannot stay behind. There has been a certain slowdown in evolution and there have been other schools that have advanced us“.

The sports director must have a quarry bias, but with the ability to control all areas of the first team, promote future coaches and work on the methodology

The candidate expressed that the bet “goes with a unified leadership. The unified leadership will think about the club in the medium or long term. An important element is also the professionalization of full-time workers. Also, we must give step in the modernization of the club. The infrastructure is top-notch and technological steps have been taken, but there is still a long way to go. It is not just implanting cameras, but it is necessary to see what is done with that data, how it is ordered and how it is exploited for the correct conclusions. What it is about is putting order in these sources of information to get the most out of them”.

The sports director who directs “must have a quarry bias, but with the ability to control all areas of the first team, promote future coaches, work on the methodology. It is not as simple as saying that since there are almost no signings, that figure is not necessary. Much of the work he will do will be geared toward youth.”

At the moment the market is complicated and I fear that this will lead someone to commit an imprudence, to make risky decisions with stratospheric salaries in order to secure the figure of a coach

Izan Athletic has been working for days with the person who will be his sports director and coach, although they are not signed yet. Uriarte warns that the weight of the trainer in the elections and the dates in which they are carried out can be a problem. “It should not be the only factor to analyze. There is expectation for the competition. All candidates seek the best for our projects. We are happy with our choice.. What scares me the most is that at the moment the market is complicated and I fear that this will lead someone to commit imprudence, to make risky decisions with stratospheric salaries to ensure the figure of a coach. And put your interests before those of the club. It is something that the partners should analyze.“.

the project will see the light through Social Networks. Uriarte explained why. “We decided to do it differently, adapted to our circumstances and believing that it was the best for the partners. It’s what we’re doing. I don’t know if it’s the best, but it’s giving us results because the closeness is with people in a different way. We visit different areas of Bilbao and towns in Bizkaia so that they can meet our team. And we complement that with media appearances and a strong presence on digital channels,” he said.

The candidate, regarding the aspirations of the Board of Directors that has surrounded him, has indicated that “we have not come here to hang out. We are in the prime of life and in the best moment of our professional career. We have not come to walk around the box, we have come to transform Athletic. Not turn it around and change it completely, but adapt it to the present.“.
