Maxi RODRIGUEZ signs with Peñarol

Maxi RODRIGUEZ has found a new club in South America.

The Newell’s Old Boys legend has signed with his fifth club, his first in Uruguay. Maximiliano made his Newell’s debut back in 1999 before moving to Espanyol in 2002. He lated joined Atletico Madrid in 2005 prior to making the switch to Liverpool in 2010. He then went back to his boyhood club in 2012 where he performed very well and was part of the Argentina National Team which made the final of the 2014 World Cup.

With Argentina, Maxi scored 16 goals in 57 matches, three of which came in the 2006 World Cup (which included THAT goal against Mexico). Maxi also took the decisive penalty in the semi finals of the 2014 World Cup against Netherlands where his shot took Argentina to the final.

Best of luck to Maxi!

    Racing won over Independiente Medellin 3:2 away and qualified to next round. Goals of Mansilla, Diego Gonzalez (called up by Sampaoli for Bolivia), Cuadra. Zaracho assist. Neither Lautaro Martinez nor Brian Fernandez have played.

    Arsenal de Sarandi won against Sport Recife in Copa Sudamericana 2:1 (unfortunately first game lost 0:2).

    Arsenal is interesting team with many former representants of youth teams like Leo Rolon ’95, Rodrigo Contreras ’95, German Ferreyra ’96, Monteseirin ’95 also Marcos Curado. But best of them is Juan Brunetta, category ’97. One of those that were not alowed by clubs to play on youth WC. He scored and had key pass before second goal yesterday. A lot of creativness from the boy.

      You guys have introduced a lot of youngsters, most of them were not impressed me, but this kid looks very promising. Can’t wait till he plays in la liga.
