‘I got back for a reason’ – Inaki Williams after knocking Barcelona out of Copa del Rey

Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams says he had a target before he arrived in Spain for Wednesday night’s Copa del Rey fixture against Barcelona.

Inaki Williams was directly involved in two goals in the quarterfinal tie as Bilbao claimed a 4-2 win over Barcelona after extra time to knock out the latter.

The 29-year-old scored one goal and set up another in the 4-2 win despite only leaving Ghana’s camp in Ivory Coast for Spain less than 48 hours before the game.

Inaki said he was confident his team was going to beat Barcelona and advance to the next stage of the cup competition which he helped them do with his two-goal involvements.

After the game, the forward, during the celebrations said, “I got back for a reason. Let’s go!”

Despite featuring in all three group games for the Black Stars at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), the forward made little impact.

His performance in his first game with his club will definitely put the woes with the national team behind him.
