Enrique 'Kike' Mateo Montoya (born 30 December 1979) is a Spanish footballer who plays for CF Lorca Deportiva as an attacking midfielder.

Football career[edit]

Born in Murcia, Mateo spent until the age of 25 in the third and fourth divisions, when he signed with SD Eibar in the summer of 2004. During the second level campaign he did not miss one single game, as the Basque nearly achieved an historical La Liga promotion, eventually finishing fourth; subsequently he played another two seasons in division two, with Hércules CF, also appearing and scoring regularly.

In 2007–08, Mateo proved instrumental for Sporting de Gijón, for whom he signed in July 2007 as a free agent,[1] netting a squad-best 12 goals as the Asturias club returned to the top flight after a ten-year absence. He made his competition debut on 31 August 2008 in a 1–2 home loss against Getafe CF,[2] and scored his first goal two rounds later, in a 1–7 demolition defeat at Real Madrid[3]– as Sporting avoided relegation in the last matchday, his other goal of the season came against FC Barcelona (1–3 loss at the Camp Nou on 8 February 2009)[4]– and he appeared in a total of 24 matches, 14 from the bench.[5]

On 16 July 2010, aged nearly 31, Mateo signed with Elche CF in the second division, for three years.[6] He left at the end of his second season, and resumed his career in the lower leagues.
