Ion Andoni Goikoetxea Lasa (born 21 October 1965) is a Spanish retired footballer.
An offensive player of wide range, he operated in various positions on the right side of the pitch (right back, midfielder or forward), and was best known for his FC Barcelona spell, during the club's Dream Team years.
A product of hometown's CA Osasuna's youth ranks, Goikoetxea was born in Pamplona, and he first appeared in La Liga two days shy of his 20th birthday, in a 0–2 away loss against Celta de Vigo. An automatic first-choice from early on, he scored a career-best 11 goals in the 1987–88 season, as the Navarrese finished fifth.
Subsequently Goiko moved to league giants FC Barcelona, but was immediately loaned for two years to Osasuna's neighbours Real Sociedad where he would only missed two league games in two seasons combined, achieving another fifth place in his second.
In 1990–91 Goikoetxea arrived at Camp Nou, joining several other Basque players, including Txiki Begiristain, Julio Salinas and José Mari Bakero. These would help form the backbone of the legendary Dream Team, winning four league titles in a row, with the addition of the club's first European Cup (where he appeared in the second half of the 1–0 win over U.C. Sampdoria).
In his first season with Barça Goikoetxea played in 37 matches, being voted the Spanish Footballer of the Year by Don Balón magazine. In the 1994 summer he joined another Basque side, Athletic Bilbao, amassing nearly a further 100 top flight appearances in three years.
Goikoetxea retired in 1999 after a brief spell with Japan's Yokohama F. Marinos – where he again teamed up with Salinas – and a return to Osasuna, now in the second division. Ten years later he started his coaching career, aiding former Osasuna and Bilbao teammate José Ángel Ziganda at newly promoted Xerez CD, with the pair leaving in early 2010.
During the 1994 competition in the United States, Goiko appeared in all the matches, scoring twice in two draws against South Korea (2–2) and Germany (1–1), his misplaced crossing attempt catching goalkeeper Bodo Illgner off-guard in the latter game.
