“I'm very happy to join Cadiz and play in LaLiga. It is a dream come true for me and my family. I am looking forward to meeting everyone soon and beginning the hard work to bring joy and success to our fans.
Our job is to win games and provide a show for our fans. LaLiga is one of the best championships in the world, with several of the best teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid or Atlético de Madrid.
I never imagined I could play against them. Now it's a reality. Now I have to work hard. I'll give my best to win games, against the big teams it will be even more. I'm looking forward to starting all these challenges,” said Mabil.
The former Adelaide United midfielder is set to become the first outfield Australian player to play in the Spanish top flight for 16 years
His debut could see him come up against the Socceroos captain Matt Ryan, with Cadiz pitted against Real Sociedad in the first game of the season.
