“In 2022/23, Mejia established himself as a regular for the Under-21s by making 15 appearances and scoring against Arsenal and Leicester City after bouncing back from a couple of injury setbacks.”


Last summer, he represented the youth squad on a trip to the United States, where he participated in a friendly match against Wrexham. In San Diego, he took over for Shola Shoretire for the final phases.

He told Estadio Deportivo, “I was in that match with Santi Aragón, and he immediately surprised us with his speed and ability to unbalance.”


“Since we signed him, the tempo was perpetually altered due to his speed.” Catalán elaborated, “With spaces, Mateo is simply lethal, much like a bullet.”Additionally, he is distinguished by “a magnificent and exquisite stride” and “a strong start that renders him exceedingly challenging to pass in the race.”


Our sincere wishes are with Mejia as he pursues his endeavors in Spain.
