Ricardo Rodriguez’s agent on exit talk: “He has never run away from difficulties”

By Oliver Fisher -

The agent of AC Milan defender Ricardo Rodriguez has seemingly dismissed any chance of his client leaving in January.

Swiss-German outlet Blick reported on Thursday that the full-back is ‘unsettled’ with the Rossoneri following the arrival of Theo Hernandez in a €20m deal from Real Madrid.

Rodriguez has found himself on the bench for the last three Serie A games – something that has apparently attracted the attention of Atletico Madrid, Schalke, Dortmund, Everton and Roma.

The 27-year-old hinted that he doesn’t intend to remain on the bench for long during an interview while on international duty with Switzerland.

During the summer Calciomercato.com claimed Milan would look to listen to offers for Rodriguez for a fee of around €20m.

However, his agent Gianluca Di Domenico has now told Rete Uno’s microphones that he is not trying to find his client a new club.

“It is only a matter of media speculation,” he said, as per MilanNews.it.

“Ricardo grew up in Zurich, then he played five and a half years in Wolfsburg and for two years and half is in Milan, so it is clear that he has never run away from difficulties, at this moment there is no reason to panic.

“It is true that he has not played the last three games, but this is part of football, because in the big teams there must always be two strong left-backs.

“A new coach has just arrived at Milan, so there will be new possibilities, now he is focused on the national team.”
