Ezquerro1

Santiago Ezquerro Marín is a Spanish striker born on December 14, 1976 in Calahorra.

He has previously played for CA Osasuna (1994-96), Atlético Madrid (1996-98), RCD Mallorca (1998) and Athletic Bilbao (1999-2005). At Athletic he established himself as one of the most promising forwards in La Liga scoring 107 goals in 222 games, also making one appearance for Spain. His form in the 2004/05 season led to him signing for FC Barcelona in a free transfer.

Santi Ezquerro made his FC Barcelona debut in 2005 in the second match of the league campaign against Mallorca. In his first season at the club he appeared in 11 league games and 4 in Europe. He scored 4 goals in all competitions, and was an integral part of the double winning side.

However, he was not able to establish himself in the first team, despite winning consecutive ‘Swan d’Ors’ from the Spanish Press Association in November/December 2006.
