Without a doubt I am feeling pretty good about Maxi Rodriguez and I strongly believe that he will be a huge success at LFC if signed, here are the reasons.
1) Taking a paycut : It has been reported that Maxi is willing to take a paycut to join Liverpool, this is almost unheard of in modern football that a player makes a financial sacrifice to play for a team. I am sure that the Kop will reward Maxi with a song or two for such a gesture.
2) Mascherano : It is no secret that Maxi wants to play in the World Cup, what a better way to make the squad if you are recommended by the Captain. I am sure Maradona will be all ears to anyone Javier recommends.
3) Rafa : Having a manager who speaks your language is always a big plus and on top of it Rafa is respected in Argentina and in Spain. Maxi is a mature player who will do very well under Rafa’s guidance.
4) Torres : A former team mate of Maxi, I am sure that both of them will be thrilled to play together again.
5) Pellegrino : You simply can not argue that having a compatriot as a coach is a huge plus, especially when you see how Insua has developed in the last year. No one would understand Maxi better than Mauricio.
6) Insua : Of course the more compatriots the easier it will be for Maxi to settle, Emiliano also gives Maxi the opportunity to have a young team mate to mentor.
