Football career[edit]

Born in Bilbao, Biscay, Herrerín was a product of Athletic Bilbao's youth ranks. He played a couple of months with the farm team CD Baskonia, being loaned to Barakaldo CF in January 2007.[1] After returning in the summer he was assigned to the B-team, also in Segunda División B.

In July 2010 Herrerín decided to leave Athletic in search for "a new life in football", signing a contract with Atlético Madrid and playing two full seasons with the reserves, also in the third level.[2] On 8 January 2011, in a match against neighbouring Getafe CF B, he scored the 3–2 winning goal for the hosts in the 72nd minute.[3]

Herrerín returned to Athletic Bilbao in the 2012 summer, signing a two-year deal and immediately being loaned to CD Numancia in a season-long move.[4] On 18 August he made his Segunda División debut, in a 2–0 home win against Sporting de Gijón.[5]

In July 2013 Herrerín signed a new contract extension with the Lions, and was definitively promoted to the main squad.[6] On 23 August he played his first match in La Liga, keeping a clean sheet in a 2–0 win over CA Osasuna at the Anoeta Stadium;[7] he spent his first year, however, as backup to longtime incumbent Gorka Iraizoz.
