São Paulo tell Clemente Rodríguez to find a new club
Clemente Rodríguez has been told that he can leave São Paulo and find a new team after failing to become a first team regular at Tricolor according to Lancenet.
The Argentine defender joined the club in June and was expected to solve their problems on the left side of defence but his time got off to a disastrous start.
The left-back was sent off against Bahia in his Brasileirão debut for the club and only went on to feature two more times.
He suffered from injuries during his spell with Tricolor and fatefully before São Paulo’s overseas trip to the Audi Cup become injured again. The left-back problem was solved on that trip and Rodríguez couldn’t force his way back in again.
The 32-year-old has played for a number of clubs during his 13-year career but has spent the majority of his time at Boca Juniors.
However, there is a vast difference in money between the Brazilian and Argentinian game and although in a recent interview Rodríguez said he would like a return to Argentina it seems unlikely.
Rodríguez will hope to find a new club in the off season and try to force his way back into the national team as he appeared twice for La Albiceleste in 2013.
