Isaac Aketxe Barrutia (born 30 June 1989 in Bilbao, Biscay) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Albacete Balompié as an attacking midfielder.

Football career[edit]

Having emerged through Athletic Bilbao's prolific youth ranks (although he also played youth football with Basque neighbours Arenas Club de Getxo), Aketxe made his La Liga debut on 20 September 2009, coming on as a substitute for striker Fernando Llorente for the final ten minutes of a 3–2 home win against Villarreal CF;[1] he spent the vast majority of his first two seasons at the club with the reserve team, in the third division.

For the 2010–11 campaign, Aketxe was loaned to another side in the region, Sestao River Club in the fourth level. In the 2011 summer, his contract with Athletic was not renewed and he signed for SD Eibar in division three.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Aketxe's young brother, Ager, is also a footballer and a midfielder. He too was groomed at Athletic Bilbao's youth setup.[3]
