Muniain gives Berizzo his first win as Athletic Club coach
« on: August 21, 2018, 05:02:14 am »


Athletic Club had a dramatic late victory over Leganes, sbothai with Iker Muniain giving Eduardo Berizzo his first three points as the club's coach.The Argentine coach was appointed in the summer after his acrimonious departure from Sevilla, and his reign got off to the perfect start at the Estadio San Mames.Muniain has lived through the heartache of several injury layoffs, yet the promising forward is hoping for a consistent 2018/19 campaign which has begun in the best possible fashion.Peru Nolaskoain Esnal opened the scoring in the 27th minute before Jonathan Silva levelled the match just six minutes later.The hosts controlled possession after the intense 10 minute period in which both goals arrived, sbothai  yet there wasn't too significant a purpose about their play. Leganes weren't put under any huge pressure, and it wouldn't be correct to suggest the visitors were struggling for long periods.Guido Carrillo made his debut after being reunited with Mauricio Pellegrino and suitably impressed, even though he failed to take any of his chances.Athletic Club began life after Kepa Arrizabalaga with Unai Simon given the chance to start the league opener, and the Spaniard made an exceptional save from point blank range. As the match looked to be heading to a close the hosts snatched a victory with Muniain appeared at the back post in the penalty area to convert a chance. sbothai
