Career

Born in Abadiño, Biscay, Iturraspe began his career in the youth ranks of Athletic Bilbao. He suffered from persistent hip injuries which hampered his development, although he was still able to feature in the final of the 2013 Copa del Rey Juvenil.

After a season with the farm team, he made his debut for the B-team on 7 September 2014, playing the final 15 minutes of a 5–1 home Segunda División B rout of SD Leioa in place of Néstor Salinas. On 17 May 2015, the last game of the season, he scored his first goal, in a 2–2 draw with SD Huesca at the Estadio El Alcoraz. Iturraspe's team gained promotion via the end of season play-offs, in which he scored in a 2–0 first round victory against CF Villanovense.

Iturraspe made his first appearance in a professional league on 30 August 2015, when he started in a 2–1 Segunda División defeat away to Elche CF. He went on to feature regularly during the campaign, although always being replaced or coming on as a substitute due to his physical problems. After they were relegated, he remained with the reserves in the following season, again making several appearances but never completing 90 minutes.

In summer 2017, Iturraspe's contract with Athletic was rescinded and he moved to third-tier SD Amorebieta.

Personal life

His older brother, Ander, also became a professional in the same position. He too came through at Athletic, and went on to represent Spain internationally.
