Predictions are also accepted for matches of the teams in which the legendary goalkeeper played. So, Zubizarreta began his career in Alaves. But he really became famous in Athletic Bilbao. Playing in this club, he first received a call to the Spanish national team and was the main guardian of its goals for 15 years. By the way, you can also spend the bonus from Bet365 on matches of La Furia Roja.
After Athletic, the keeper was promoted and received an invitation from Barcelona. It was with the Catalans that he played the most matches in his club career and, not surprisingly, managed to win many trophies, in particular:
- Champions League;
- Winner of La Liga (4 times, twice he won gold medals with Athletic);
- Spanish Copa del Rey;
- Spanish Super Cup;
- Cup Winners’ Cup.
The list of the legendary goalkeeper’s trophies goes on and on. In total, he had 622 games in the top division of Primera. This is an indicator that no other player has yet been able to achieve.
For a long time Zubizarreta was the holder of the record for the number of victories (334). However, this figure, like many others, was surpassed by Lionel Messi. Many people thought that the Argentine would bypass the goalkeeper in terms of the number of matches held, but his departure to PSG dashed these hopes.
