Rodrygo ‘goes down’ to Castilla

first_imgNeither the player nor his environment, in fact, hoped that everything had gone so fast and at such a positive level, even remembering his start in Castilla. Rodrygo, moreover, has noticed since his arrival that Zizou is a close friend of the rotations, from which few of his colleagues have escaped. Lightning He relies heavily on his coach and his coaching staff, whom he notes very close to him and very aware of his evolution.Rodrygo will be in the stands in the four league days of February, against Atlético, Osasuna, Celta and now Levante. This month has only played 14 minutes, in Cup against Real. In total, in 2020 it accumulates 226 minutes of 1020 possible, 22.16%. In 2019-20 he is the 16th player in the leading role, despite which he is the second top scorer, tied with Ramos to seven goals. That’s why he pulls patience and focuses on being prepared for when he retells more.The option of getting together with CastillaRodrygo’s absences in Madrid’s calls could be taken advantage of by Raúl for a Castilla very depleted by the casualties. The Brazilian keeps the record with the subsidiary because the first team has the 25 covers he has available. Now that he does not enter into Zidane’s plans, Rodrygo could continue fusing with the subsidiary in the demanding Second B. A strategy that was already followed with himself at the start of the season, with Vinicius last season and now Reinier will live.Rodrygo has only played two games under Raul. They were on the 4th day against Langreo (0-0) and on the 6th against Rayo Majadahonda (3-1, the Brazilian scored the second goal), both in Di Stéfano. That last game was on September 28. Vinicius, on the other hand, had a somewhat broader journey with the subsidiary last year. He played five games: two at home (Las Palmas Atlético and Unionistas) and three away from Di Stéfano (Atlético B, Cultural Leonesa and Celta B). He scored four goals and gave an assist thereby contributing to four points scored by Castilla that were decisive to reach the playoff. He played his last match in Second B on October 21, 2018 and Solari’s promotion consolidated him into the first team. From the apotheosis of his hat-trick against the Galatasaray on another magical European night at the Bernabéu to disappear from the Zidane calls. On the afternoon of this Friday, Madrid’s list for Levante (Saturday, 9:00 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) showed an absence that has surprisingly become habitual, that of Rodrygo Goes (18 years old). It is the third consecutive call (and the fourth in a row in the League) in which the Brazilian does not appear. He can still play with Castilla, with which he maintains a record, but it has been almost five months (since September 28) without ‘going down’ to a call from Raúl’s subsidiary. It is what will happen, a priori, this weekend. Rodrygo will play Sunday against Sanse, according to confirmed sources of the club to the agency EFE. There will join the debut of fellow countryman Reinier With the white subsidiary.His current leading role in the first team comes after he was positioned ahead of his compatriot Vinicius in many moments of the season in his coach’s preferences and in minutes. Unlike now, the rarity for weeks was his absence at eleven. In the month of February, he has only enjoyed 14 minutes of play.A circumstance that, however, as AS has learned, does not bother him in the least. Rodrygo is living cautiously his first season in Europe, a little roller coaster. Just as he kept his feet on the ground when the titles, goals and praise, now he does not lose perspective. The former Santos would have signed up at this point at this point, with 1,010 minutes with the first team in four competitions, League, Champions, Cup and Spanish Super Cup.Zidane, in the morning, before Rodrygo’s new discard was known, responded as follows about his situation: “The moment, if you look at it like that, is bad. But we know that he is an important player for us and when they are all there is a call. He has all the time. He is 18 years old and has shown why he is here.”last_img
