Bielsa: This is a valuable starting point

Athletic Bilbao manager, Marcelo Bielsa was relieved to finally get his first points of the season, stating to the post-match media that last Sunday`s 2-0 win over newcomers Valladolid was a good match to build upon.

Bielsa praised his squad for what they had endured this summer, to overcome the disappointment of the first two weeks, and remain focused on the task at hand.

“This win will be valueable if it`s a starting point, just having interrupted streak of two defeats in a row is good enough for now.”

Athletic are hoping to build upon this confidence during the international break, while hopefully incorporating last season`s leading goal scorer, Fernando Llorente back into the line-up, as the wantaway striker was not moved prior the close of the summer transfer window.
