They say that Abdullah Ben Barek El Antaki was born in the King’s Palace in Rabat, Morocco, on 2nd February 1937. A story worth telling, that, always being in possession of a football, took him to a new land called Málaga, that adopted him as his son.

He returned this affection with an entire career at our city’s Club, as a player, coach and undertaking a multitude of functions, until his current role as Málaga CF adviser. A Blue and Whites’ icon, who always transmits joy and strength to the players, coaching team and workers within the entity with his usual phrase: “If you’re ok, then I’m ok”.

Málaga CF’s Malaguista family wanted to share this day with him, as our ‘pajarito’ reaches 80 years of age. Inseparable from Antonio Benítez and Francisco Martín Aguilar, plus a large group of employees within the entity, he blew out the birthday candles in his home, La Rosaleda. Sir, as we see it, we’re all ok!
