The Career of Inigo Martinez
Martnez, who was born in Ondarroa, Biscay, joined Real Sociedad’s youth divisions after joining local CD Aurrerá Ondarroa. In the 2009–10 season, he made his senior debut, contributing 23 games and one goal to assist the reserves in advance from the fourth level after a year away.
Martnez made his first-team – and La Liga – debut with the Basques on August 27, 2011, when he played the entire 90 minutes in a 2–1 away win over Sporting de Gijón. He scored his first league goal on October 2nd, from inside his half, in a 2–1 home derby loss to Athletic Bilbao.
Martnez signed a new five-year contract on April 26, 2016.
Martnez signed a contract with Athletic Bilbao on 30 January 2018 for €32 million (his contractual buyout clause amount and a record outlay for the buying club), which was roughly half of the fee received the same day for the player he replaced in the Athletic squad, Aymeric Laporte, who had moved to Manchester City. He made his debut on February 4th, appearing for the duration of Girona FC’s 2–0 domestic league defeat.
Martnez was awarded two penalties for foul challenges in two local derby matches in the domestic league in October 2018, both of which resulted in the opening goal and were awarded after VAR reviews – the first in a 3–1 home defeat to his old club Real Sociedad and the second in a 1–1 away draw against SD Eibar.
Martnez scored his first goal for Athletic with a backheel flick in a home league match against Betis on June 20, 2020 (in his 85th competitive game). He later gave up a penalty, but the kick was missed, and he ended up scoring the game’s only goal.
Martnez was in the spotlight in the delayed 2020 Copa del Rey Final, coming close to scoring with a long-range shot in the first half, but appeared to have conceded a penalty for handball on the edge of the penalty area at the start of the second half – a VAR review ruled this to have been outside the box – then did concede a penalty for a foul on Portu ten minutes later. The referee sent him off, but a VAR review determined that he had not purposefully denied a goalscoring opportunity, and the red card was downgraded to a yellow. Real won the trophy with a 1–0 result after the penalty was scored. He was hailed in the media for his sportsmanship afterward, as he was seen taking time to congratulate his numerous old teammates.
His both club’s and country’s jersey number is 4.
He has scored 26goals in his club career.
In 2011, Martnez made his debut for Spain’s under-21 team. He was chosen by manager Luis Milla for his team that competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London the following year. He was sent off late in the first half of the first game against Japan for taking down Kensuke Nagai, depriving a clear goalscoring opportunity and resulting in a 1–0 loss.
Martnez earned his full-team debut on August 14, 2013, when he came on as a second-half substitute for Sergio Ramos in a 2–0 friendly victory over Ecuador.
He received eleven caps, including seven starts, between September 2018 and March 2021, but he was left out of Luis Enrique’s 24-man squad for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament (which was postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe) when it was announced on May 24, with the player stating that he was not completely satisfied with his physical situation after missing several club matches during the season and that an agreement had been reached between him and the nation.
Recently he has been called up for national team training and he’s expected to play in World Cup 2022 as a key player for Spain.
