Athletic Bilbao South American players


Recommended Posts

Iv'e asked this on a different forum but nobody could come up with a decent answer so ill try here

 

If you are Athletic then your scouting options are limited due the self imposed policy, however as a few may know you are able to sign Espericueta (Mexican) and Diego Forlan (Uruguay ) so there are clearly players of South American descent which technically qualify by being partially Basque so there in lies my question/problem

 

Is there any way of finding out just how many more possible gems could be lying out there in South America because in real life it probably is'nt that unusual with all of the spanish speaking countries

Is their not a search by Basque Nationality option in the player search screen when you play as Bilbao? (If not you might be able to load up the editor and search that way though that won't find regens - for that you could try a third party scout tool).

There's scouts that have knowledge of the Pays Basque area, hire some and the players will appear.

 

I'm sure they had amorebieta who went onto Fulham who was from Venezuela and he was Basque.

Also Diego Forlan played for Athletico Madrid, not Bilboa.

Forlan has Basque descent like the OP is talking about. Anyone know if South American regens generate with Basque heritage?

Regens must get Basque heritage, at least those who come through the Athletic academy and presumably those born in the area (both Spanish and French Basque countries). Don't know about further afield though.

Well i went into the editor and filtered Basque nationality added with based in south america and there are only a few and all of them are useless so shame about that, Although there is a player in the inter milan u19s called Eboku who is basque and he is actually pretty decent

FM doesn't simulate Athletic's philosophy 100%.

Athletic can sign, basque born players and non basque players developed in the Basque Country. Athletic have african and south american players in the youth system and they are not basque or basque related, just people who migrated to the Basque Country. Also there are spanish or french players (Valverde, Ezquerro, Laporte) who are not from the Basque Country but have developed as players in a basque team.

 

What FM does is allow you to sign only spanish players before they turn 17. So my advice is try to sign the best 15/16 yo players and good luck with their development. As soon as they turn 17 in your youth squads, they will gain the basque nationality.

Regen are usually young players created by the game season after season. Don't know if they substitute retired players, I think it depends on each country strength.

Sorry, didn't understand you. Yes he's real. http://www.inter.it/it/settore_giovanile/under-17-serie-a-e-b

Moises Eboko Cordoba. Looks like he's from Valencia, may be as a 16yo you can buy him and he will gain the basque nationality.

I dont even sign a player with Basque origins if he wasn't born in Basque and has signed a professional contract somewhere out of Basque area like the case of Asensio! I have faith on Lezama and on "gure estiloa"(our style) !!!  The moto of Athletic Club is"Con cantera y afición, no hace falta importación"(with our academy and our fans there is no need for imports)

I play in the same way. I don't think FM does a great job of incorporating Athletic's transfer policy, but at least you can choose to do it this way if you want. If you support/follow the club, it's a massive part of the clubs identity and it's important for me to play it true to life.
