Muniain: ‘We come with all the ambition in the world to get this title’

Muniain’s speech regarding this Super Cup is very similar to that of Marcelino, his new coach. The Athletic captain is aware of the difficulty of the challenge, but he sees his team trained to repeat the feat of 2015. For trying, he assures, he will not stay.

“This title is very important for everyone. We are four great teams, very competitive, and hopefully we can enjoy the final on Sunday. We come with all the ambition in the world to get this title”Muniain assured from La Rosaleda.


The Navarrese already knows what it is to win a Super Cup with Athletic: “That time, when we won the title against Barça I was recovering from a knee operation. Now I have to be able to live healthy and with great enthusiasm, like the whole team. LThe requirement is maximum, but I see the team trained to get something favorable”.

Regarding tomorrow’s rival, Muniain stresses that “we are not going to discover anything about Madrid. Powerful in all its lines. High quality bench. We have to try to be an organized team in defense, aggressive and intense. Very careful when they attack because they have players with a very high resolution capacity ”.
