But he remarked: "I wish for luck and to continue for many years here. Anyway, now I'm focused on my work, eager to contribute and help the team. It is the club of my life, since I was born I have been with Athletic and it is where I want to be for many more years.
"If the final agreement cannot be reached between the club and myself, I would be very sad."
