Emre Mor (born 24 July 1997) is a Turkish professional footballer who plays as a winger or a forward for Spanish club Celta de Vigo and the Turkey national team.

Early life

Emre Mor was born and raised in the Copenhagen suburb Brønshøj, Denmark, to a Turkish father and a Turkish-Macedonian mother.[2][3][4] He is a supporter of Galatasaray.[5] Mor speaks Danish and English. He can not speak Turkish.[6]

Club career

Early career

At the age of 16 in December 2013, Mor was on a trial training with Saint-Étienne but did not receive a contract.[7]

Mor played at Lyngby on U17 and U19 levels before he was released by the club in January 2015.[8] The message from the club was that "the conclusion is that the talent can not be redeemed in Lyngby Boldklub".[8]

FC Nordsjælland

On 31 January 2015, it was confirmed, that Mor had signed a contract with FC Nordsjælland,[9] despite being courted by other clubs in the Superliga and abroad. The original intent was for Mor to play for the U19.

Mor got his official debut for FCN on 28 November 2015.[10] Mor started on the bench, but replaced Guðmundur Þórarinsson in the 84th minute in a 0–1 defeat against Randers FC in the Danish Superliga. In the next league match after his debut, Mor was in the starting lineup against Brøndby IF.[11] Mor's performance earned him a new contract and a place the first team squad starting in January 2016.[12]

Borussia Dortmund

During late 2015, Mor was linked with Borussia Dortmund.[13] Borussia Dortmund confirmed the signing on 7 June 2016,[14] announcing a five-year contract for Mor.[15] He made only 12 appearances in the Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League for Borussia Dortmund during the 2016-17 season, usually as a substitute on the right wing or in attacking midfield.

Celta Vigo

On 29 August 2017, Mor signed for Spanish club Celta Vigo.[16]

International career

He represented Denmark in their U17, U18, and U19 teams. However, in 2016 he switched allegiances to the Turkish Football Federation, with his father having to sign Emre's citizenship papers from his prison cell,[17] and was called up to the Turkey U21 team, in a 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification match against the Slovakia U21.[18]

Mor made his senior debut for Turkey against Montenegro in Antalya in May 2016. He was included in the Turkey senior team's squad for UEFA Euro 2016, making him the third-youngest player at the tournament.,[19][20] and came off the bench to replace Cenk Tosun in Turkey's opening Euro 2016 game against Croatia. He was also part of the starting 11 in the last match Turkey played in the 2016 European Championship against the Czech Republic and made an assist to Burak Yılmaz for the opening goal.
