MCF / Defender / Mikel

Mikel Villanueva Álvarez

A centre back with the capability of a neat exit of the ball at the back, rapid on the cross and good aerial play.  Due to his versatility he can play on the left wing.  His great campaign in 2015/16 with Atlético Malagueño allowed him to reach international level with Venezuela, being called-up for the Copa América Centenario.  His contract with Málaga CF is until the 2019/20 season.
