38-Year Old Aritz Aduriz Scores Outrageous Acrobatic Winner Against Barcelona

38-Year Old Aritz Aduriz Scores Outrageous Acrobatic Winner Against Barcelona

38-year old veteran striker Aritz Aduriz has just made the best possible start to his final season as a professional by scoring a sensational acrobatic volley winner against Barcelona.

Barca, without their talisman and captain Lionel Messi, were well below par at San Mames and were beaten late on in the La Liga season courtesy of Aduriz's worldie.

The Spaniard, on as a substitute a minute earlier, inflicted defeat on the reigning champions with the most stunning scissor kick finish after being picked out just inside the area.

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen had absolutely no answer to the venomous volley conjured up by Aduriz, who sent the stadium into a frenzy.

The former Valencia and Mallorca man has scored over 170 goals for Athletic but announced earlier this month that he will be calling it quits from the game once 2019/20 is done and dusted.

Revealing his retirement at a news conference, Aduriz said: "I wanted to communicate that this year is going to be my last year as a professional.

"I will leave football when I finish this season. It makes me especially excited to be able to leave it at Athletic.

"The aim of saying it now is to avoid distractions so I can focus everything on the team. Hopefully we can end the year with something very nice and we can offer all our fans something beautiful.

"I feel very happy to be able to leave football at Athletic. I will compete and enjoy every day until the end. We believe the end never comes, but choosing the end and where I will be at the end is an immense privilege.

"It is a thoughtful decision, which I could've taken last year, but circumstances have made it this year. It is a decision made with my family. I am very proud that I end at Athletic."
