 Rodrigo profile aged 25 in 2016

Rodrigo career history until 2016

Here is a classy winger. Rodrigo is a flying machine with great acceleration and pace with the dribbling and agility to match, making him very effective out wide. The one problem with him playing out wide is, he is a selfish player which explains the lack of assists and abundance of goals from the screenshot above but he turns in some spectacular performances which is why he would be great for any team in the world. His asking price is steep and for that price you could have 2 great wingers which should explain the rating

Best buy rating: 8/10

      Had hif for liverpool, he was a beast! he was AML, Cavani ST and Suarez AMR. Best front three I’ve ever had

      Used him alot, in my first 2 seasons with him he was my best scorer in the league and in the champions league, he is really fast he can get the ball in the midfield and run forward and score alone! but that selfish atitude can really make a bad look of him.

      I used Rodrigo on my first season as a striker and he got 42 goals in 48 games.

    the only problem in rodrigo is he doesn´t like to play big games :S

  • comment avatar Daniel June 20, 2012

    Between him and Muniain for AML, who is better, considering I prefer to use inside foward role?

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 3, 2012

      sorry about the late reply. I to like to use the inside forward role, i would say there isnt much between the two but muniain is who i would prefer.

  • comment avatar Joe July 3, 2012

    I wanted to know this as well Daniel but I think Muniain is a better player the rating is about the money as well.

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 3, 2012

      Well, that’s a tough one, but i too would say that Muniain is better, although both are great players.

    I use Rodrigo mostly as Winger because his finishing level is not good, comparing with my current strikers Oscar Cardozo and Carlos Fierro.
    Very fast and unpredictable player, but sometimes he tries to finish when he has a team mate on a better position to score. That’s is related with his low teamwork rating.
