Club América had the heavy departure of Jonathan Rodríguez in March of this year. Although the Azulcrema team fell in the Concachampions, those led by André Jardine still have a good chance of winning the Clausura 2024. But “Cabecita” has not had the same fortune in the United States.

The Uruguayan forward made the difficult decision to leave Club América. The Copa América is about to begin and Rodríguez was looking to show himself to enter the call for the Uruguay national team.

But not everything went smoothly for the “Charrúa” striker. Jonathan Rodríguez went from fighting for the Liga MX championship to fighting for a victory with the Portland Timbers.

Jonathan Rodríguez far from victory

The data is stark: in all the games in which Jonathan Rodríguez has played, Portland Timbers have not been able to win. In total, “Cabecita” has played six games with the MLS team.

The former forward of the Azulcrema team has participated in the 1-3 defeats against Philadelphia Union; 3-2 against Vancouver Whitecaps and 3-2 against Los Angeles FC. In addition, the Uruguayan also played in the 3-3 draws against Kansas City; 2-2 against Los Angeles FC, and 2-2 against Columbus Crew.

In all these games the South American forward has added minutes. In general terms, “Cabecita” has accumulated 505 minutes on the field in which he has been able to score 2 goals and grant 1 assist.

14 clubs participate in the Western Conference. Portland Timbers are in 11th position with 10 points accumulated so far this season. So far, Rodríguez’s strategy is not working. It is evident that poor collective performance affects his individual performance. The Copa América is just around the corner and “Cabecita” has not yet taken off with his team in the United States.
