Miguel Ángel Atienza (May 27, 1999) obeys one of the few positive news from Eibar in 2021, in which it seems that it can lead to the Second Division unless it is applied to the maximum in this final section. Mendilibar’s team, avoiding difficulties in the form of injuries and sanctions, has pulled the young Atienza to patch the laminated midfield, with Exposito and Diop out of action. In this situation, the Madrid midfielder has been rescued from the subsidiary, CD Vitoria that plays in the Third Division, by Mendilibar to serve as a support in the wide area.

Emerging from adversity, he has already added eight games in the First Division. Atienza, who has a contract with the armory subsidiary until June 2023, riding with the first team for months, has received external interests. A very intellectually trained boy, with a total commitment to Eibar, with whom he participates as a second coach in his Infants and with spectacular career notes. After knocking out Alavés, Atienza commented that they need “a lot to win, to be close to who we want to be and to feel identified with our game and we want to achieve it; the key is to give it continuity and we can be very close. Your confidence increases, you have to believe a lot, have faith, believe in ourselves, and I’m sure we will be very close, I’m sure, “he launched with caution and hope about the salvation of an Eibar who will fight until the end.
