De Marcos's decision on his stay at Athletic

Oscar de Marcos is at a crossroads regarding his future at Athletic Club. The Laguardia player, who scored the second goal in the match against Almería, has a contract until the end of the season, but has not yet decided if he will continue with the team. "I'll decide a little later. I have doubts, my end is approaching. I don't know when it will be, if this season or the next. I have to value it. Now the important thing is the eight finals that we have left, "said the footballer.

Physical and emotional aspects in the decision of the winger

Despite being the Athletic player with the most minutes in La Liga, De Marcos does not only evaluate his physical condition when making this decision. The psychic aspect also plays a crucial role in his future. «It is not only the legs or the physical condition. It is also the emotional. You have to value it," added the right-back.

The farewell of Mikel Balenziaga, a key support for De Marcos

Recently, Mikel Balenziaga, one of De Marcos' great supporters in the dressing room, announced that he will leave Athletic Club at the end of the season. The emotional farewell of the player from Alava in the San Mamés press room revealed the close relationship between the two players. "I didn't think I was going to collapse so much. I have lived a lot with him. He is like my better half in the dressing room », declared De Marcos.

The uncertainty about the continuity of Oscar de Marcos at Athletic Club keeps the rojiblanca fans in suspense. His contribution to the team is undeniable, but the player must assess whether his physical and mental state allow him to continue competing at the highest level.
