Maxi Rodriguez is a legend at Newell’s Old Boys, and it looks like he got a gift from another Newell’s legend, Marcelo Bielsa.

Rodriguez, the former Newells, Espanyol, Liverpool, and Atlético Madrid winger, currently plays for Peñarol in Uruguay, but he remains a Newells legend and played for Bielsa when Bielsa was in charge of the Argetina national team. The 37 year-old hasn’t hung up the boots yet, and who knows, maybe he’ll convince one of his teammates to go play for Bielsa.
