Athletico Bilbao’s Spanish forward of Ghanaian descent Inaki Williams has insisted feels more part of Athletic Club though he says he remembers his African roots. 

The 20-year-old was born to a Ghanaian mother and a Liberia father but has yet to feature for his country of birth or countries of his parents.

Ghana officials have started monitoring the talented forward who came off the bench to score for Bilbao against Torino in their Uefa Europa League clash.

But he has stated he feels more Spanish but did not state he will not play for Ghana.

“You hear people say ‘A black player at Atletico Bilbao? We’ve never seen that before.’ I just laugh. My name is Inaki and I’m from Basque,” Inaki told Thinking Football.”

“My parents came here over two decades ago and I can identify with the stories because they did so much for me. I was born here, I’ve been here for 20 years and although you never forget your roots, I feel Basque”.

Inaki has grown through the ranks at Bilbao after joining them as a teen some couple of seasons back.
