Real Name: Javier Damian Morales
HT: 5' 9" WT: 150
Age: 36 (01/10/1980)
Birthplace: Lomas de Zamora, Buenos Aires
Hometown: Buenos Aires, Argentina

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed by Real Salt Lake on August 17, 2007.

One of the best playmakers in MLS history, Morales just keeps on producing for RSL. The longtime face of the Claret-and-Cobalt’s attack, the Argentine No. 10 is one of the best in the league at unlocking opposing defenses and has a great eye for the final ball. He’s no stranger to putting the ball in the back of the net, either, scoring 45 goals in 211 career league appearances – including at least eight a year in every season since 2013.

OUTSIDE MLS: Morales began his career in his native Argentina, signing his first pro contract with Primera division side Lanus in January 1998. He bounced around Argentina in the early part of his career, moving from Lanus to Arsenal in 2000, returning to Lanus in 2003, signing with Newell’s Old Boys for a brief period in 2004, going back to Arsenal later that year and eventually landing at Instituto de Cordoba in January 2006. He moved to the Spanish second division that July, playing one season UD Vecindario before moving to RSL in the summer of 2007.

Morales’ best pre-RSL stint came in his first tenure with Arsenal, when he scored 14 goals in 102 league games from 2000-2003.

NOTES: A three-time MLS All-Star, Morales is Real Salt Lake’s all-time leader in assists with 77 in league play.
