Rodolfo Pizarro is one of the best Mexican players of the moment. The midfielder lives a great moment at Inter Miami of Major League Soccer ( MLS ), which has served to be called up to the Mexican team of Argentine Gerardo “Tata” Martino .
However, his good performances were not always well rewarded in the Tricolor, as happened in the management of Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio . Now that he is called up regularly, the midfielder said that this team has improved substantially.
“The national team has improved a lot with Tata Martino. I think he has had a significant change, in terms of the coach who was there before, I think he looks like a very solid team and the players who are now have also grown a lot (in) their level, “he said in an interview with MLS.

Pizarro's games have not gone unnoticed by the South American coach. Everything seems to indicate that the offensive midfielder has increasingly adapted to the rhythm of the American league and did not hide his enthusiasm to participate with the Florida state team.
“I think it has been a good stay. I'm happy to be here (in MLS), I'm happy . It has been complicated, but I'm fine, I'm trying to enjoy myself and always give my best for the team, ”said the native of Tampico, in the northeast of Mexico.
And it is that the Mexican has won the title in the picture directed by the Uruguayan Diego Alonso . In the current campaign he has 19 games played, 17 of them as a starter , where he accumulates 1,570 minutes on the field, with four goals scored and five assists .

In addition, the midfielder and Inter Miami continue to fight for the MLS title. They finished in the tenth position of the Eastern Conference, so they will be able to play the Playoffs in a few weeks, where they will face off against Nashville Soccer Club .
Meanwhile, the Florida club confirmed on Tuesday that Pizarro will attend the call-up of the Mexican team without any inconvenience . This after the coach commented that they would seek to retain the player for the postseason games.
“Rodolfo has the tickets to go out with the national team, we will see if we can manage with that; but we know that he has an obligation to go out with his team and we respect them ”, Diego Alonso mentioned at a press conference.
