Macarthur FC Lock-in Second Spaniard Susaeta


Macarthur FC are thrilled to announce the signing of Spaniard midfielder Markel Susaeta for our debut season in the A-League.

Susaeta joins the A-League newcomers, a move that sees him relink with former Athletic Bilbao teammate Beñat, who was announced by the club last week.

After 12 seasons in Spain and 507 matches for Athletic Bilbao, Susaeta returns to the A-League, having played 10 matches with Melbourne City last season before returning home to Europe at the beginning of the COVID pandemic.


Macarthur FC Head Coach Ante Milicic was delighted to secure Susaeta’s services for the inaugural season.

“I’d like to welcome Markel to the club.”

“We got a little taste of what he is capable of in the A-League last season. I’m looking forward to seeing him link back with Beñat on the pitch across the season.” Milicic said

“Both Markel and Beñat joining is a real coup for the club. Their ability and experience will be invaluable.

“I’m extremely happy with the shape of and balance the squad is taking and looking forward to seeing his influence on the younger members of the squad.” Milicic added.

Susaeta will commence training with the first team upon competition of the mandatory 14 days quarantine.
