Inaki Williams urges his side to keep up the good work

Athletic Club won the Spanish Super Cup this month by beating Barcelona in the cup’s final, which proved to be their first trophy since 2015.

The club can double up their trophies as they will play their Basque rivals,

Real Sociedad

, in the delayed final of the 2020 Copa del Rey in April. They will face


this evening as the Blaugrana are still hurting from the Supercopa defeat.

“We are in a very good dynamic



told Marca in an exclusive interview.

“We’re on the crest of the wave and we have to keep surfing it. It’s a nice game to show that we can be the best.

“Football is made up of runs and we’re on a positive one. The arrival of the coach has meant that those of us who weren’t doing so well can. It is helping us a lot to grow and we have a lot to improve. The truth is that green shoots are being seen and we’re leaving a good mark.

“When he arrived he talked with me and told me that he would play me more as a forward than as a winger. It’s the place I like to play and I prefer the way we’re playing now, with fast counter-attacks and vertical passes to find me quickly.

“I’m delighted to be playing the role of an important player. I will try to return that confidence with goals and a job well done.

“The days after winning the Supercopa there were memes that were very funny, we were sharing them in the team group chat.

“For them it will be a small revenge. All the games we play against Barcelona are very intense. I expect a fairly even game in which nobody is going to give anything away. We will need to be right and defend strong.”
