Maxi Rodriguez: New Atletico Madrid Captain

Posted by atleti on July 18, 2007


Election results are out: Maxi Rodriguez has been unanimously voted the new captain for los rojiblancos. Manager Javier Aguirre is credited for nominating him for the position.

Thoroughly deserved and there’s no doubt in my mind that the right player was chosen for the job. As a player, the Argentine has intelligence, pace, and tremendous technical ability. As club captain, he’ll have a opportunity showcase his leadership qualities: to motivate, inspire, and drive the team forward.

Again, excellent pick for captain and I look forward to seeing the impact he has in that position.

I recently found this GIF file and I couldn’t resist adding it to the entry. Still a goal that blows my mind away.
