2001-2020: Quintana’s joyful journey

Yesterday wasn’t just any other day for Alberto Quintana. The homegrown player debuted with Málaga CF’s first team, participating in the magnificent win in Fuenlabrada.

Alberto Miguel Quintana Moreno (Villanueva del Trabuco, 2001) is one of the many players raised in the MCF Academy. The versatile defender or defensive pivot passed through the lower echelons of the Club at Infantil, Cadete and Juvenil age and now, with the reserve team, has made his debut with the first team in LaLiga SmartBank.

Quintana made his debut yesterday, during #FuenlaMálaga, playing the final minutes of the 0-2 win thanks to goals from Yanis and his teammate from the Academy for many years, Ramón Enríquez. Quintana will never forget the 1st December 2020.

The above MCFTV video shows his transition from boy to man, and some of his footballing qualities from when he was a young boy. “I’m happy with my debut”, he shyly said to the camera before today’s training at La Rosaleda’s Annexe, receiving sincere applause from his teammates.

Alberto, the future is yours. Go for it!
