Description

Enric Saborit Teixidor (born 27 April 1992) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Athletic Bilbao as a left back.

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia and raised in Mataró, at the age of 16 Saborit left the youth ranks of local RCD Espanyol and moved to Vitoria-Gasteiz where his mother was living. A short time later he joined Athletic Bilbao, prompting debate over whether his signing met the criteria of the club's policy as he had no link to the Basque region other than the short period of residency in the territory.

After graduating from Athletic's youth academy at Lezama, Saborit spent three full seasons with the reserves in Segunda División B. He played 36 games in 2012–13, playoffs included.

Saborit made his La Liga debut with the Lions on 25 August 2013, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 win against CA Osasuna at the Anoeta Stadium. On 9 July 2014, after being sparingly used in his debut campaign, he was loaned to RCD Mallorca in Segunda División.

Saborit returned to Bilbao Athletic in 2015–16, and featured regularly in their attempt to stay in the second level, which ultimately proved unsuccessful. He made one appearance for the first team against AZ Alkmaar, in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League, starting and assisting with his head to Kike Sola's goal to mark his European debut.

Saborit was promoted once more to Athletic's main squad for the 2016–17 season, as understudy to Mikel Balenziaga. He scored his first senior goal on 8 December 2016, in a 1–1 draw at SK Rapid Wien for the Europa League group phase.
