Pagellone / Rodriguez continues to shine under Juric management

After doing well last season, the Swiss is repeating himself this year by always being ready when called upon

Arrived at Toro in the summer of 2020, at Marco’s explicit request Giampaolofor Ricardo Rodríguez the first season in the shadow of the Mole was undoubtedly with more shadows than lights, so much so that the Swiss defender seemed on the starting foot. Subsequently, due to various factors, the former Milan player remained in the grenade and under the management of Ivan Juric it has had a real renaissance. Rodriguez did very well last season, becoming a very important player in the Croatian coach’s chessboard. And also this year the number 13 grenade is repeating itself, even managing to wear the captain’s armband when he takes the field. Furthermore, Rodriguez is proving to be a true leader in the grenade locker room. A point of reference of few words, but that when he speaks everyone listens and follows. He is a gift that not all players possess. While, as far as performance on the pitch is concerned, he has demonstrated good technique and excellent qualities on set pieces and has also shown the excellent experience acquired over the years. In addition, it must be emphasized that Rodriguez can still improve a lot and both he and Juric know this.

Rodriguez: against Inter he also came close to scoring

The Swiss defender to date has collected 13 league appearances And 1 in the Italian Cup. In Serie A Rodriguez missed only two games, those against Sassuolo and Udinese, and in 10 games he started among the starting eleven. As owner or as substitute Rodriguez has practically always done well, even managing to come close to the joy of scoring in the match against Inter, one of the most positive games by the 13 grenade despite the defeat. Instead the worst match was definitely the derby. But now we need to think about the present and the future. First the World Cup with Switzerland, then the second part of the season with Toro. What is certain is that Rodriguez does not want to stop.

Score: 6.5
