Josu Urrutia: Athletic Club's New President

There's a new boss in town and he's already made his first bold move by bringing the first non-European coach to the club: Marcelo Bielsa; many of us are on the fence about it because we can't say if he's gonna fit the club, he won't have the same freedom to choose as other coaches do since we don't sign foreigners or people who haven't spend time in Basque youth systems, I think we have a very balanced squad, specially now that Ander Herrera is up, all we need is to get a decent left back (I wanted Monreal but the Anti-Athletic clause made him unattainable by the club) and maybe get Aduriz back so Llorente can have some rest, he's been playing all the matches in all the competitions so his body is usually spent at the end of the season.

Bielsa plays with a 3-1-3-3 formation, right? so I think we might get something like this as starting XI:

Gorka Iraizoz as GK
Andoni Iraola - Borja Ekiza - Fernando Amorebieta in the back
Carlos Gurpegui/Pablo Orbaiz as pivot
David López - Javi Martínez - Ander Herrera as midfielders
Gaizka Toquero - Fernando Llorente - Iker Muniain in the attacking line

I loved Josu as a player and I hope he's as dedicated as President as he was when he was wearing the club's colors.
