Uruguayan Brian Rodríguez misses the Classic vs. Chivas due to a flu condition – La Opinion

Uruguayan striker Brian Rodríguez became América’s only casualty for this Saturday’s duel against Chivas del Guadalajara, in another edition of the Clásico de Clásicos and where the Uruguayan striker hoped to add minutes for what has been a discreet participation in the current Clausura 2024 tournament of the MX League.

Rodríguez, who has had a hard time getting into rhythm after his knee injury in the last championship that prevented him from adding more minutes in what seemed like his best performance in Aztec football.

An attack of flu before traveling to Guadalajara left him off the list for the match against Chivas and although this Friday the Uruguayan trained for a while at the club, in the end he ended up leaving the Coapa facilities before the team will make the trip to the Tapatia Pearl.

Perhaps the little production of the so-called “Rayito” Rodríguez does not represent a significant loss for a team like América, but because his countryman Jonathan Rodríguez was also left out of the team due to his signing with the Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer (MLS). ), the American team has a hole in the attack that could weigh on them when looking for solutions in the game.

On this matter, coach André Jardine did not show too much concern, as he considers that with the Dutch Javairo Dilrosun and Salvador Reyes, as well as with Santiago Navedas and even Illian Hernández, the absences of the Uruguayans “Rayito” and Cabecita” Rodríguez, are more than cutlery.

So far, Brian Rodríguez has only played 299 minutes with three starts in the nine games he has played in this season.

The phenomenon that happens to Brian Rodríguez clearly demonstrates how difficult it is to earn a starting position in América and even in the tournament he has already had some friction with the team’s coach because he has been relieved in most of the games or has not played. been taken into account.

So we will see if the absences of the Uruguayans Brian Rodríguez and Jonathan Rodríguez do not end up weighing on the Águilas del América’s objectives.
