Mateu Morey is one of the most promising outbreaks of Spanish football beyond our league. The right back is pure talent and a good example that in the quarry of Spanish football there is always new blood to trust.
Morey has gradually made a place for himself in Borussia Dortmund’s starting eleven (displacing Meunier) and is one of the most prominent of his team in recent games. One more member of the young and attractive Borussia Dortmund project.
The Balearic footballer (2-3-2000, Palma de Mallorca) joined the ranks of the German team in the summer of 2019. After a first campaign of adaptation to German football in the shadow of Achraf Hakimi. In this one he is becoming a fixture on the right side of the yellows.
Holder in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Sevilla, was also one of the highlights this Saturday in the Ruhr basin derby against Schalke. The right-back caused a ball steal that ended in Sancho’s first goal and its evolution continues from less to more.
Every time he looks more mature in his game from the right side of Terzic’s team. He is a more accomplished footballer.
Morey was European U-17 champion in 2017 with Spain from Santi Denia in which he formed a right band of scandal with Ferran Torres.
He was the ‘2’ of the future at Can Barça. But after proclaiming himself champion of the Youth League in 2018, leading García Pimienta’s team with Carles Perez and Mingueza, had a 2018-2019 season to forget.
Morey broke the external meniscus of the left knee, which had him in the dry dock until March 2019. When he returned, a sprained knee left him blank for the entire season. And above the contract with Barça ends.
Controversial no to Barcelona
Despite his injuries, at Barcelona they wanted to keep him but Morey decided to say ‘no’ to the offer of renewal of the culés and to look for new objectives.
Michael Zorch, Borussia Dortmund sporting director, He knew of his talent and had already groped the footballer’s environment so that he could reach the ranks of the German team free.
“It has not been an easy decision, but after a long period of time, and together with my family, we have made the decision to close a wonderful stage at FC Barcelona to start a new and exciting adventure”.
It was the farewell to Morey, who preferred to pack his bags and not continue at Barcelona. “I decided not to renew with Barça, I believed that Dortmund was the best option to grow”, explained the right-hander last summer on the microphones of The spar.
Morey thus slammed the door on Barcelona to the club that ‘caught’ him from the youth of Mallorca in 2016, aware of its great projection.
Morey has known how to take advantage of the physical problems of the starting side, Thomas Meunier, and is performing at a great level complicating the Belgian international.
Borussia’s offensive way of playing is perfect for Morey’s conditions, that adds to his qualities a versatility that allows him to play as inside on the right wing. A cannon that keeps shooting down obstacles from Germany and that shines in the best showcase in the world: the Champions League.
