Ghanaian striker Iñaki Williams to miss final La Liga match following surgery

Iñaki Williams, a Ghanaian striker for Athletic Bilbao, will miss the final La Liga match of the 2023-24 season against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday due to plastic surgery.

According to an official medical report provided by the San Mamés Club, the 29-year-old striker had surgery to treat a bothersome scar on his left foot.

The surgery was performed at the IMQ Zorrotzaurre Clinic on Tuesday morning. As a result, he will not be available for Bilbao’s final match of the season, which will take place at Vallecas.

Despite missing the final matchday, Williams has had a successful campaign, appearing in 39 games between the league and the Copa del Rey. He scored 14 goals and provided five assists, helping his team win the Copa del Rey title against RCD Mallorca in a penalty shootout on April 6.

The older brother of Nico Williams, Iñaki has been an integral part of Bilbao’s squad this season, and his absence will undoubtedly be felt in the team’s final match.
