José Eulogio Gárate Ormaechea
He began his career in the small Basque side, Indachu, where he was quickly spotted and signed by Atlético de Madrid. On his arrival, the team had just won the league and he had a quick education playing alongside players such as Luis Aragonés, Adelardo , Irureta, Collar, and Ufarte .
This team went from strength to strength, becoming one of the greatest and most successful Atlético sides, especially of recent years. He played 241 games, scoring 109 goals.
With the Spanish national side, he débuted on October 22, 1967, against Czechoslovakia. His final game was on April 17, 1975 against Romania. Unfortunately, this period was a low-point for Spanish football, and the national team failed to qualify for either of the European or World Cups in his time. This meant that his talents were not seen on as wide a stage as they might. He only played 18 times for the national side, in which he scored 5 goals.
