He debuted in Europa Mena, another piece of the Utrera school

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder entered Sevilla during the final minutes against the Qarabag to follow the trail of Kings and Ceballos.


Jose Mena debuted in Europe with the Sevilla shirt during the last 22 minutes of the game between the Nervian team and the Qarabag. He had already played for a while with the first team last year in the Cup, against Villanovense, but yesterday he jumped into the field with the continental showcase in the background and also in the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. 21-year-old creative midfielder, this is the last Utrera-born youth squad that is currently playing the elite in the two Sevillian teams. Another of the promises that is growing from the Sevillista subsidiary and that they expect in Nervión can become a first level soccer player.

With vision on the last pass, good touch, ability to overflow and goal, Mena leads the Utrera school in his boots. That of the last two greats that came out of there, Dani Ceballos and the ill-fated José Antonio Reyes, but also that of others who have played these last five years with their first teams such as the Bético Israel Bascón or the Sevilla player Juan Muñoz.

Mena, who made the preseason with Julen Lopetegui, has played 14 games in Second B this season with Sevilla Atlético, of which he is the leader in many sections and important in the scorer, with six goals. He had entered the list against Dudelange too, without playing, and two seasons ago he was also on the bench against eMadrid in the League. The Gipuzkoan coach has him among those chosen to have minutes with the first team, although it is true that in his position there is a lot of competition with Banega, Mudo Vázquez, Óliver Torres or Joan Jordán himself. Utrera continues to provide players at the top
