Maxi Rodriguez: New Atletico Madrid Captain?

Posted by atleti on July 12, 2007

I mentioned previously that Antonio Lopez is a strong candidate for the captaincy. Who is challenging the Spaniard for that key role? Fan favourite Maxi Rodriguez, the influential Argentine midfielder (fully recovered from that horrendous injury he suffered during the early part of 06/07).

Today, during the Argentine’s talk with the press (regarding the job of captain), he said:

There’s also Leo Franco and Antonio Lopez.

The prospect of possibly becoming captain excites Maxi, but he would certainly support fellow Argentine Leo Franco or Antonio Lopez if they were chosen over him. I admit, I think that all three are great choices (and made my personal short-list), so it’s difficult for me to choose one over the other at the moment.

Stay tuned for developments on this.

During the press talk, Maxi also made it clear that despite the loss of El Niño, the club remained focused on the task at hand: qualifying for UEFA via Intertoto.
