The forward of the Athletic club Iñaki Williams has become the player with the most consecutive games played in LaLiga Santander, with 203, after starting this Friday in the match against the Deportivo Alavés in San Mamés, a figure that allows it to exceed Juanan Larrañaga (202).
In this way, after five years, five months and ten days, closes a streak that began on April 20, 2016 against the Atlético de Madrid in San Mamés. Since then, it has participated in all LaLiga matches that Athletic has played: four from the 2015-16 season, 38 from the 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21 campaigns and the eight of the current course.
All this, from the hand of five different technicians: Ernesto Valverde, the ‘Cuco’ Ziganda, Eduardo Berizzo, Gaizka Garitano and Marcelino García Toral. Of those 203 games, Williams has started 169 of them.
On his way to the record, he left behind Carmelo Cedrún, who held the Athletic record (132), exporters Zubizarreta (184) and Arconada (188), before catching up with Larrañaga, who set the record with Real Sociedad between 1986-87 and 1991-92.
