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.


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]
