Leo Messi dedicate some exclusive words on Aritz Aduriz in an 84-page special magazine that Athletic will edit in recognition of the career of the great rojiblanco striker who retired this season after having surgery on his left hip.

The rojiblanco members will receive in the next few days at their homes this monographic, in which in addition to making a brief review of his life as a lion, with the best images of his 172 goals and countless anecdotes, technicians write in the first person that they have trained him as Jupp Heynckes, who made him debut, and Ernesto Valverde, and companions as special as Carlos Gurpegi and Ismael Urzaiz.

The culé star – “the world number 1”, says Athletic in his statement – dedicates some exclusive words to him, highlighting his potential as a player and the difficulties he has always put Barça at, who scored four goals in the Super Cup won in 2015 and the last of his career, an excellent scissor that served to win the first league game on the last day.

A review is also made of all his records and each and every goal scored as a lion is detailed, both in official competition and in friendlies.

The magazine, which will be available starting next Monday, August 3, at the online store tienda.athletic-club.eus and in the official stores of the club at the price of 5 euros, also includes images of the farewell of two other beloved lions , Mikel San José and Beñat Etxebarria.
