Today, David Zurutuza has signed a one-year contract extension with Real Sociedad. Accompanied by the President Jokin Aperribay, the txuri urdin midfielder appeared in press conference at the Anoeta media room.
Zurutuza has stated that “I am very happy and sure about extending my deal until 2020. I am excited and have much energy. What we are building gives me hope. Real is a team full of highly regarded homegrown players and I need to play my part in this. It goes far beyond football. I want to transmit to young people what they have taught me over the years. I was doubtful and I have questioned everything but there were reasons for doing so. I like the coach's approach and what we are building. I have a better understanding of football and that is why my heart has spoken”.
The president wanted to thank David as he is part of a generation of footballers who revitalized the club in the last decade. “This is an award for your effort. It is not easy to promote from Second Division to Champions in a few years. You have been a fantastic generation in all aspects. Through you, I would like to thank an entire generation. Now, we have to set a shining example for the next generation, players who are striving for their place in the world of football”, he said.
