Martinez urges Athletic Bilbao teammates to stay grounded

Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez has urged teammates to stay grounded.

Athletic face Real Mallorca tonight sitting in fifth place.

Martinez said: "It's a privilege to have 38 points after 22 matches and we aren't going to give up at all, but there's still a lot of the season left.

"We have a certain advantage, but if we don't work with the same humility and desire that we've had until now then we won't achieve anything."
