Munir El Haddadi Mohamed known simply as Munir is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a forward for Sevilla FC.
Munir began his career in the youth ranks of Atlético Madrid before transferring to Barcelona in 2011, where he won the 2013–14 UEFA Youth League. He made his debut for the B-team in March 2014, and scored in his first match for the senior team in August of that year, at the start of a season in which they won the treble. The following year, he was one of five top scorers in the Copa del Rey, which his team won.
Munir earned his first cap for the Spain national team against Macedonia on 8 September 2014. He unsuccessfully appealed to FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport to switch allegiance to Morocco for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
After starting at Galapagar and DAV Santa Ana, Munir scored 32 goals in 29 matches playing for CF Rayo Majadahonda's Cadete A team, on loan from Atlético Madrid, after impressing during a trial in 2010. However, both Atlético and Real Madrid turned down the opportunity to bring him into their ranks. As a result, he attracted interest from a number of sides such as Manchester City but signed for Barcelona's youth academy the following summer.
As a child, Munir idolized Messi and Moroccan international Adel Taarabt. A report from FourFourTwo magazine noted his composure on the ball, tricks, speed, and highlighted his finishing ability and set-pieces; his ability with his weaker right foot was criticized.
After his goalscoring debut, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique praised Munir as a player whose effort in training matches that on the pitch but warned against getting carried away with his performance.
