If Tití says no, the Pincha has the replacement in the folder

As explained this morning several weeks ago, among Ricardo Zielinski’s wishes for next season are the continuity of Federico González in attack (difficult), the incorporation of a mixed midfielder and a forward, and the renewal of Lucas Rodríguez , something that also appears complex but that will write more chapters as the hours go by.

However, in the event that Tití does not accept León’s offer and decides to continue his career away from 1 and 57, Estudiantes have already thought about the replacement, currently in Mexico.

It is the Víctor Ignacio Malcorra midfielder, the latest performance at Atlas.

Emerging from the Lower River, the 33-year-old left-hander represents one of the Leon’s old yearnings, who have already looked for him in previous markets, but without luck.

He is currently one of those targeted to leave the team led by also Argentine Diego Cocca, since his relationship with the Mexican team ends on June 30 and the Foxes have not shown interest in renewing the relationship, so he could Reaching the Lion as a free player, something key considering the difficulties that Argentine football presents in economic matters.


Although it is not one of the positions wielded by Ricardo Zielinski, Malcorra presents interesting characteristics for the game that the Russian proclaims, with flyers that can reach the bottom to supply the two area forwards.

With the possibility of also acting as a winger, the left-hander has overflow and a great punch both from the ball stopped and in motion, which earned him the interest of other Argentine teams at the time, such as Racing and Rosario Central.

Given this, a possible negotiation to take over his services could be directly linked to the future of Lucas Rodríguez, a midfielder who has the endorsement and trust of DT Pincha, who has used it a lot.

the great memory tatengue

With previous steps by the CAI of Comodoro Rivadavia and Aldosivi of Mar del Plata, Malcorra had his football explosion in Unión de Santa Fe, a club he arrived in 2014 and remained until 2016, before the jump to Mexico.

Led by Leonardo Carol Madelón, the left-hander was one of the mainstays of the Tatengue that rose in 2014. There the midfielder played a total of 20 games, scored 3 goals and assisted his teammates in another 5.

Thanks to its imbalance on the band and another of its important characteristics, the accurate hit, was key for Union to settle quickly in the First Division and not suffer from the averages. In fact, from assists and goals, Tatengue was on several occasions close to qualifying for international competitions.

Already in the elite of Argentine soccer, Malcorra accumulated 45 games in Santa Fe, where he scored 16 goals and distributed 17 assists, numbers that earned him the interest of several teams, including Estudiantes.


In the current 2020/2021 season, in which his team was eliminated in the Quarter-Finals against Puebla weeks ago, Malcorra played a total of 37 games, starting 34 of them, in which he scored 5 goals and distributed 2 assists.


For some time now, El Pincha has sent several signals to Lucas Rodríguez trying to seduce him into renewing his contract and continuing in the albirroja institution.

Since that particular greeting for his birthday, Zielinski’s statements regarding his importance within the squad and the fact of giving him the captaincy in the last match of Zone 1, against Argentinos Júniors in La Paternal, all have been signs of rapprochement between the parties, who owe a talk.

In this way, and although in the first instance from the representation of the player they had stated that he would not continue in the León, the same could change in the next few hours, when they meet again.

It should be remembered that the midfielder’s contract with Pincha expires on June 30, so, if he does not continue, he could be one of the first players raised in the Club who, being a starter, leaves that way .

In the last Professional League Cup, of which the champion remains to be defined, Lucas Rodríguez played a total of 10 games, 8 as a starter, and scored a goal, in the 2-0 win against Platense at the Jorge Luis Hirschi.

In total, Tití has ​​had 139 matches with the Estudiantes jersey since that debut in 2015, which makes him, together with Andújar, the only two representatives of the squad to exceed 100 presentations with the León.
