Six Years Gone,still Counting, Williams still Waxing stronger for Bilbao


Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams
has played in every LaLiga game for the past six years.
He has played 224 games in a row, never injured, never suspended and never left out. 

Williams achieved the feat as he played the first half of Bilbao’s 2-0 loss against Celta Vigo on Sunday, as reported by The Sun.

The last time Williams didn’t play in a LaLiga game for Bilbao was in April 2016 against Malaga when he missed out because of a thigh problem. 

In October last year Williams broke the record for the most consecutive LaLiga matches, which was previously held by Juanan Larranaga, who made 202 appearances in a row.

During this run Williams has played under five different managers – Ernesto Valverde, Jose Angel Ziganda, Eduardo Berizzo, Gaizka Gartiano and current boss Marcelino.  

The 27-year-old’s current contract runs until 2028, which means that he could make more appearances for Bilbao.
