Club careerEdit

Satrústegui was born in Pamplona, Navarre. However, he played his entire professional career in the Basque Country, solely representing Real Sociedad. With the team he totalled 133 La Liga goals in 297 matches, contributing solidly to their league wins in 1981 and 1982 (29 goals combined) alongside namesake Jesús María Zamora.[1]

After a serious knee injury in a match against Real Zaragoza in November 1982 (meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament),[2] Satrústegui never fully recovered and retired aged 32, at the end of the 1985–86 season.[3]

International careerEdit

Satrústegui earned 32 caps and scored eight goals for the Spanish national team,[4] and represented his country at UEFA Euro 1980 and the 1982 FIFA World Cup, retiring from international play immediately after the last second group stage game, a 0–0 draw against England – this would also be Zamora's last appearance.[5]
