Prieto reveals final chat with Bilbao-bound Inigo Martinez: Don’t f**k with me, you’re leaving

One of the shock moves of the January window was Inigo Martinez’s short hop from Real Sociedad to Athletic Club, and it was one which caught Xabi Prieto off guard.The midfielder has revealed his last conversation with Martinez before the move was sealed, intimating that he could scarcely believe it was happening.”It was natural, I said: ‘Ini, don’t f**k with me, you’re leaving’,” the midfielder confessed to Noticias de Gipuzkoa.”And he answered: ‘Yes, I’ve made a decision’. “Then I told him what I thought. But, it was a personal decision that must be respected, that you can more or less agree with.”Money was evidently a clear factor in the way Prieto saw the deal, but he nonetheless wishes his former teammate the best at Sociedad’s local rivals.”No, I don’t think so,” he stated when asked if Athletic represented a step up.”Economically surely yes, but in sporting terms I hope not. To Inigo personally, I wish him the best, but I hope that he will always be behind La Real.”
