Spanish La Liga side Cadiz CF have signed Socceroo Awer Mabil to a long term contract

If success is the best form of revenge, Awer Mabil’s move to La Liga is the perfect reply to one of his harshest critics. The 26-year-old Socceroos winger is set to become the first outfield Australian player to play in the Spanish top flight for 16 years.

Mabil described the move to one of the best leagues in world football as “a dream”, but it’s one that, just a year ago, he was told would never happen.

At a time when hewas struggling for game time at Danish club Midtjylland, Mabil revealed he was told by someone with a strong influence on his career that he didn’t have what it takes to play at a higher level.

La Liga’s Cadiz CF have secured the services of Socceroos Awer Mabil.  The former A-League winger joins them from Danish side FC Midtjylland.

Socceroos winger Awer Mabil has made a move to Spain, leaving FC Midtjylland after seven seasons with the Danish Superliga side.  

During his time in Denmark he won both the Danish Superliga and Danish Cup.  Mabil also did several loan spells to Danish opponents Esbjerg fB, Portugues side FC Paços de Ferreira and most recently Turkish side Kasimpasa.

He now joins La Liga side Cadiz CF on a four year deal. Cadiz received promotion to the Spanish top flight ahead of the 2020-21 season.  They finished 17th in the league last season, narrowly escaping relegation.

The signing was announced in Mabil’s hometown of Adelaide.

La Liga resumes play in August.  In his first order of business, Mabil and Cadiz CF will face Socceroos’ captain Mat Ryan’s Real Sociedad on August 14, 2022.
