Club career[edit]

Born in Igorre, Biscay, Basque Country, Vitoria joined Athletic Bilbao's Lezama in 2000, aged ten. He made his senior debut with the farm team in 2007, in Tercera División, and subsequently served two loan stints at Segunda División B sides SD Lemona and SD Amorebieta.

Vitoria left the Lions in 2012, and signed for Club Portugalete in the fourth tier. After scoring a career-best 24 goals in the campaign, he signed for UE Sant Andreu in division three.[1]

Vitoria continued to appear in the third division in the following years, representing SD Leioa,[2] Burgos CF, [3] Barakaldo CF[4] and UD Logroñés.[5] He helped the latter in their first-ever promotion to Segunda División in 2020, scoring ten goals in 28 appearances (play-offs included).

Vitoria made his professional debut on 12 September 2020 at the age of 30, starting in a 0–1 away loss against Sporting de Gijón.[6]
