Waiting for Brian Rodríguez

The Uruguayan international, who has been called up with his national team, has only played eleven minutes with the rojiblanca. Before Lugo he was left without leaving. "There is no Brian case," says Gomes.


It was the pitch on the last day of the market in Segunda and possibly in the entire window. However, the role of Brian Rodríguez at the moment has been Pyrrhic. The Uruguayan is having a hard time getting into José Gomes's plans, in a highly valued second line of attack. Since he arrived, he has entered all the Almería calls, but he has barely played eleven minutes, a ridiculous figure for the noise that his incorporation made.If against Las Palmas he did not get to jump onto the pitch, it was in Butarque where he made his debut with the red-and-white elastic. With his team tying -virtually in direct promotion- Brian Rodríguez entered in 85 ', seeing how Leganés won in discount. Four days later he also played in Mallorca, playing six minutes, already 2-0 on the electronic score.

However, perhaps what was most surprising was his absence against Lugo. Almería beat 4-1 and José Gomes left him on the bench. "He has entered little, it is true that in the last game he could have played more. There is no one who wants the best for Almería more than me. Brian was training with a personal trainer for when the opportunity came and now he has to get involved in the discipline of the group, "commented Gomes himself today.

"I am happy with him, he is happy, improving and it is a normal adaptation process. You have to give them time, especially in January, there is no preseason. There is no Brian case," says the Portuguese coach as well. Meanwhile Óscar Tabárez has included him in the list of 35 players for the qualifying matches for the World Cup on March 26 in Santiago del Estero and on March 30 in Montevideo against Bolivia. Los Angeles paid 10 million dollars (it still owns it) to Peñarol in 2019. Its current value is 12 million euros. As not to wait for it ...
