Iker Guarrotxena has packed his bags and has moved to the other side of the world. He has left Europe, specifically Greece, to settle in Australia. The former Athletic player has resolved his commitment to the Hellenic Volos and has signed for one season with Western United in Melbourne. After Markel Susaeta and Beñat Etxebarria, Enrolled in Macarthur FC, another former Athletic player lands in the continent to try his luck in a League in permanent development and expansion. A challenge that he faces with great enthusiasm and desire to succeed.

Guarrotxena has been in Australia for several days now and on Saturday he could make his debut against Melbourne City. He was presented with the opportunity to leave the Volos, where he arrived in the 2019-2020 season, and he did not hesitate to accept the challenge. The winger will play this way at his sixth club since leaving Lezama, where he trained as a footballer and learned a trade that has led him to compete in four different countries.

After serving as a member of Tenerife, Mirandés and Cultural Leonesa, the Biscayan went to the Polish Pogon Szczencin and from there he made the leap to the Greek Volos. Now a new adventure begins in the Australian Western United, where he will coincide with former Spanish player Víctor Sánchez.
