This is how we saw Rodrigo de Paul, the footballer who arrived in Qatar 2022 with more than one extra-sports scandal

Undoubtedly, one of the figures of Argentina that generated the most commotion in the preview of the World Cup Qatar 2022 it was Rodrigo dePaul. Despite the fact that he did not arrive at a great moment with Atlético de Madrid, the midfielder seemed to be the key in the core of the team led by Lionel Scaloni. However, although he ended up playing all 90 minutes in the win against Mexico, the all-rounder remains in debt during the championship.

Throughout the game against the Aztecs, fans flooded social networks with criticism of who was formed at Racing Club. Reason was not lacking. Vague, anxious and nervous were the main characteristics of De Paul. Even so, the Argentine coach decided to leave him on the field of play for the entire match. He shielded and banked his engine until the very end.

He only showed us the version of that courageous player who leaves everything in each play. That De Paul who has also driven the fans of his club out of their boxes every weekend. The player who shone in a big way in the 2021 Copa América, with good ball handling, a key link and even a scorer, has not made an appearance in the Middle East for now.

SofaScore, the portal specialized in statistics, rated Lionel Messi’s squire with 6.6, a note below the one he obtained in the opening match for Qatar 2022. As against Saudi Arabia, he did not record any shots on goal, complete dribbles , key centers, provocative free kicks and key passes. This time he lost 16 balls, seven less than the previous game. Argentina won today, but what the ‘7′ albiceleste has been showing should not be overlooked.

It was not the first time

Rodrigo de Paul was present in more than 90% of Scaloni’s undefeated record, which ended a few days ago with the surprising and painful defeat against Saudi Arabia. I find that he had behind the wheel as one of the weakest points. So discreet was his presentation in the debut of Qatar 2022 that he ended up as the player of the first day with the most turnovers (23) during the entire first day of the Qatari championship. A fact not minor.

This was not the only dire statistic. He had zero shots on target, zero completed dribbles and zero key passes. To this we must add the three long balls that he hit, in ten attempts. Finally, his passing percentage barely reached 75%, a figure that is below for a player of his career.

off the pitch

The pressure on the mattress player goes beyond the field of play. His media relationship with the singer Tini has put him in another sphere. Before the world event, more was said about his romance than about what he produced on the field of play. Apparently the player’s head is not entirely focused on soccer, even though he says otherwise. Sudden trips and a lot of nightlife have been part of his life in recent months.

It is not only a trend in the sports and entertainment section. Rodrigo De Paul has also made headlines in the legal pages. This after the food trial filed by his ex-wife Camila Homs. The one who was her spouse for twelve and mother of her two children demanded a payment of 10 thousand dollars, as economic compensation for the twelve years that she was by her side without being able to work, since he only dedicated to his family. In July of this year they had a conciliation, which finally did not end with an agreement between both parties. This put all of Argentina on edge because the player put his presence in Qatar at risk. There was no more news about it and the player came to be cited. For now Scaloni continues to give him his confidence. We’ll see what happens later if things get complicated.
