Néstor Susaeta Jaurrieta (born 11 December 1984) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Albacete Balompié as a winger.

Club career[edit]

Born in Eibar, Gipuzkoa, Susaeta began his career with Real Sociedad, but only appeared for the reserves during his spell with the Txuri-urdin, also being loaned to SD Eibar and UD Salamanca – both clubs in Segunda División – and being released in 2007.

In that summer, he joined Basque neighbours Athletic Bilbao, but again only featured with the B-side, in Segunda División B. After a sole season in which he received little playing time, Susaeta signed for another team in that level, AD Alcorcón, being one of the most important players as they reached the promotion playoffs, ultimately falling short.

Susaeta moved to Rayo Vallecano in division two in 2009, appearing in 31 games in his first year but in only 14 in the following (three starts), as the club returned to La Liga after an eight-year absence. On 3 January 2012, he terminated his contract and signed with FC Lausanne-Sport of the Swiss Super League; he left at the end of the season, and moved to CD Guadalajara.

On 13 July 2013, following his team's relegation from the second tier, Susaeta signed a two-year deal with Real Oviedo in the third.[1] On 2 August 2017, he moved to Albacete Balompié after cutting ties with the Carbayones.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Susaeta's cousin, Markel, was also a footballer and a winger. He spent most of his professional career with Athletic Bilbao.[3]
