The 28-year-old midfielder signed a three-year contract with Middlesbrough, becoming the club’s third summer transfer after the arrivals of Grant Hall and loan signing Marcus Bettinelli.
He didn’t have to wait long to make his debut for the Boro as he was named in the starting XI of their EFL Cup clash against his former club Barnsley.
First-half goals from Patrick Schmidt and Jordan Williams earned the visitors a comfortable win, with Morsy receiving a yellow card before being subbed off at the 69th minute.
The defeat means that Morsy has exited the EFL Cup twice this season as his former club Wigan were knocked out of the first round by Fleetwood Town, however, the Egyptian wasn’t included in the matchday squad.
Morsy also became now the third Egyptian to play for Middlesbrough after Ahmed Hossam Mido and Mohamed Shawky, who played for the club between 2007 to 2010.
