28 years ago was born in Arrigorriaga, Vizcaya, one of the debutants of the Spanish National Team in this call for the new normal. His success has been closely linked to the success of his club last year at Primera Iberdrola, Deportivo. It was the revelation club of last season and Ainize Barea, better known as Peke, one of the causes of it.

His name began to dream along with others like Putellas, Jenni Hermoso, Torrecilla or Bonmatí fast after the sudden rise of the already baptized Super Depor. And now he shares the bench with them.

I am 28 years old and I thought that maybe I would never get the opportunity to be international. And the end has come. This is the highest I have achieved in football. That is why I have a lot of nerves, but above all it is the illusion of living it and enjoying every second of these days ”.

Dreams sometimes come when you least expect them. It has come to Peke with maturity, but not without the desire of a rookie. Spain needs players with that desire to enjoy their dream, professional football.
