Rodrigo De Paul was whistled in Atlético de Madrid's win over Valladolid


A fundamental piece in the world champion Argentina team, the midfielder does not find his place in the Mattress, where this Saturday he returned to action after starting as a substitute.

Rodrigo De Paul

is not having an easy time at Atlético Madrid.

The Argentine midfielder had been the focus of criticism in the Cholo Simeone team since before the World Cup in Qatar, and after the World Cup he seems to have no way back.

There was a new chapter in this novel.

In the match in which Atlético thrashed Valladolid 3-0 (goals by Álvaro Morata, Álvaro Morata and Mario Hermoso)

, the world champion entered 11 minutes into the second half to replace Marcos Llorente and received a terrible and unjustified whistle

when his name was announced by the voice of the stadium by the Atlético fans at the Wanda Metropolitano. 

The anger on the part of the "Colchonero" fans arose because the midfielder did not perform at his best level since his arrival at the Madrid club and generated some resistance among the fans.

But the explanation goes further and increased after the consecration of the Argentine National Team in Qatar.

The dispute that took place on social networks between Argentines and Spaniards was transferred to the clubs and several players are incredibly paying for this issue, especially De Paul.

These whistles are not a novelty for the former Racing who already suffered it in his first appearance after the World Cup where he was attacked in this way by the fans when he was recognized for the achievement.

The truth is that the Argentine midfielder had certain misconduct, which Cholo Simeone did not like either, and they added to the long list of problems that strained the relationship with the fans. 

De Paul remained on the substitute bench and just last Wednesday, a month after becoming world champion, he added his first minutes in the Colchonero team.

And this Saturday Simeone sent him to the pitch for the second time since the start of 2023. 

With these 34 minutes played against Valladolid, the midfielder who is a benchmark in the Scaloneta National Team has played 113 minutes since January 1.

Given this scenario, the future of Rodrigo De Paul seems quite uncertain and even from Atlético they are considering a possible sale if an offer arrives that equals or exceeds the investment made when the Argentine was transferred.

Meanwhile, Atlético de Madrid, little by little, is recovering.

With the win against Valladolid, they entered the qualifying zone for the European Champions League, since they are in fourth place in the standings, with 31 points.
