Inaki Williams Jouait Depuis Deux Ans Avec Un Bout De Verre De 2 Centimetres Dans Le Pied

Athletic Bilbao’s star forward, Iñaki Williams, disclosed that he has been playing with a piece of glass embedded in his left foot for the past two years. This surprising news came to light during a pre-match press conference ahead of the team’s clash with Rayo Vallecano.

Athletic Bilbao’s coach, Ernesto Valverde, shared the unexpected development, noting that Williams underwent surgery last Tuesday to remove the glass shard.

As a result, Williams is likely to miss the upcoming match against Rayo Vallecano. The absence of the Spanish striker is significant, given his incredible record of consecutive appearances in La Liga.

Williams set a new benchmark for endurance and consistency by playing in 251 consecutive La Liga matches, a streak that spanned six and a half years.

This impressive feat underscores his resilience and dedication, earning him the title of “Employee of the Year” among fans and peers alike.

Despite his early morning training sessions and the grueling demands of top-flight football, Williams reportedly felt no significant pain, a testament to his remarkable pain tolerance and commitment to the game.

His ability to perform at such a high level while dealing with a foreign object in his foot is nothing short of extraordinary.

The surgery to remove the glass was deemed necessary to prevent further complications and to ensure Williams can continue his career without the underlying issue.

Coach Valverde emphasized the importance of Williams’ health and well-being, expressing confidence in his recovery and return to the pitch.

Williams’ revelation adds to his growing legend at Athletic Bilbao. His determination to play through pain and maintain his streak of consecutive matches has earned him immense respect within the football community.
