Iñaki Astiz Ventura (born 5 November 1983) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Polish club Legia Warsaw as a central defender.

Formed at Osasuna, he spent most of his professional career at Legia Warsaw, appearing in more than 250 competitive matches.

Football career[edit]

A product of local CA Osasuna's youth system, Astiz was born in Pamplona, Navarre, and his earlier career was spent with the B-team where he met Jan Urban, a former club player who was manager of the reserves at the time. Thus, he was loaned for the 2007–08 season to Legia Warsaw (where Urban would work as coach) in the Ekstraklasa, becoming the first Spaniard ever to play in that competition.[1]

Astiz returned to Osasuna in June 2008, only to rejoin Legia immediately for five years despite still having a contract running. The former, however, retained the possibility to re-buy the player after the first two seasons.[2]

On 21 June 2015, Astiz signed a two-year deal with APOEL FC in the Cypriot First Division.[3] He made his competitive debut on 14 July, in a 0–0 home draw against FK Vardar for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League;[4] he scored his first goal for his new team on 12 December 2016, netting the second in a 2–1 home victory over Anorthosis Famagusta FC for the domestic league.[5]

On 15 August 2017, 33-year-old Astiz returned to Legia Warsaw.[6]
