Víctor Mollejo Carpintero (born 21 January 2001) is a Spanish footballer who plays as a right winger for Deportivo de La Coruña on loan from Atlético Madrid. He has Alopecia areata, which results in him having no hair on his head.

Career[edit]

Born in Alcázar de San Juan, Ciudad Real but raised in Villa de Don Fadrique, Toledo,[2] Mollejo joined Atlético Madrid's youth setup in 2010, from CD Villa de Don Fadrique.[3] On 12 August 2017, he appeared with the first team in a pre-season friendly against CD Leganés, becoming the first player born in the 21st century to appear for the club.[4]

Promoted to the reserves ahead of the 2018–19 season, Mollejo made his official senior debut on 26 August 2018, starting in a 1–1 Segunda División B away draw against AD Unión Adarve.[5] His first goal occurred on 23 September, as he scored his team's third in a 4–2 win at CDA Navalcarnero.[6]

Mollejo made his professional – and La Liga – debut on 19 January 2019, coming on as a late substitute for Thomas Lemar in a 3–0 away win.[7] On 2 September, he joined Segunda División side Deportivo de La Coruña on a season-long loan deal.[8]
