His intervention in Al Sadr shocked everyone. They were barely 10′ and the game broke, yeah. But it is enough to see that Álvaro Rodríguez has what it takes to become a great player. Specific. He stands out for his physique (1.93 m), clearly being somewhat uncoordinated, but has great ball control and agility. After leaving the South American Sub’20, the ‘Bull’ wants to break down the door of the first white team that signed him from Girona in the summer of 2020. In fact, he was born in Palamos. Why did Barça, who controlled so much of Catalan grassroots football, ignore it?
As we learned in the game, Azulgrana Box monitored it, Several recruiters who worked (or have worked) for Barça alerted Barcelona’s grassroots football team about a diamond with an impressive physique who stood in the Cadet A of Girona. The boy was barely 15 years old at that time, but he was already quite tall. Son of former Palamos player Daniel ‘Coquito’ Rodríguez. A striker with similar characteristics to his son who ended his career in the city of Emporda and put down roots there.
Complete your year at Cadet A of Girona
They formed a club called Global Palmas and Alvaro played there until the age of 12. Girona took notice of him and the lower ranks of the Catalan unit rose rapidly. Especially in your final year. In short he was with the biggest development of the 2019/20 course boy, who was already a ‘tower’, but he had to win in coordination. And in that year of explosion, of course, the offers came and the big clubs ‘fluttered’. Among them Madrid, which has an important recruitment network in the Catalonia region.
The fact is that, as we said, the sports leadership of La Masia was informed about the player. Girona made him an offer: professional contract and Juvenile A file Even though it’s my first year. But Madrid came in forcefully and convinced him. It also helped that both the child and his father ‘Coquito’ are Madridists. They left some ‘cash’ in Montilivi and took a player whose development has been meteoric at Valdebayas. In his second season he has already played 17 games with Castilla de Raul: Four goals and four assists.
Until his long-awaited debut with the first team a few days ago. It is impossible to make better use of 10 minutes. Ancelotti has already warned that he will have more chances. With the emptiness that is above the white box when Benzema is not there.
