Athletic Bilbao favourite Joseba Etxeberria agrees to play for nothing

Joseba Etxeberria has revealed he's set to play his final year with Athletic Bilbao for nothing.

"My dream was to play for fifteen years with Athletic, which is a lifetime," said the 31 year-old winger. "In my last year as a professional this is what am I going to do. I will play without pay.

"This is a thank-you to the behavior of the club towards me and the love I have received from so many people."

He added: "I do not intend to establish a precedent. This is a professional world and everyone is entitled to defend their rights and contracts."
