Football has been under attack in recent times with the sale for vast sums of gifted Wales youngsters in their teens or early Twentysomethings. David Brooks, Harry Wilson, Ben Davies, Joe Allen and Chris Mepham are others in Ryan Giggs’ Wales team who can be thrown into the mix.
No-one knows just yet when football will be played again. But whenever the 2020-21 season does kick-off. It’s a fair bet to say Joe Rodon will become the next Welsh young gun off the conveyor belt attracting the attention of bigger clubs.
In his case, as with many of his Welsh peers, shrewd pundits believe Rodon is destined for the very top. Had Euro 2020 gone ahead, and Rodon shone against the finest strikers on the continent.
With the football and financial landscape having altered, they won’t get that sum but will probably still demand around £20m for a footballing center-half who has already made strides at the highest level with Wales.
Swansea, presuming they aren’t promoted, need to sell to raise funds in the summer and Rodon looks too good for the Championship anyway. Hence a departure appears unavoidable, but just where?
The end of ash’s wales career?
Williams, of course, became a legend for Wales and Swansea and some fans felt the national team simply couldn’t do without his experience. Giggs chose to disagree. Euro 2021 fans can book Italy Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
He quickly made then Brentford youngster Chris Mepham his first-choice central defender and also preferred Tom Lockyer and James Lawrence at times. As Euro 2021 squad skipper, Williams could never be written off still can’t be today but the emergence of Rodon has fast-tracked things further.
Even though he already had a ridiculously young team. Giggs had no hesitation in picking Rodon too for key Euro 2020 qualifiers with Croatia, Slovakia and Azerbaijan. You can’t judge someone properly after just four caps, but initial impressions are that Rodon does look the part.
One audacious overhead kick from a corner against Slovakia, which went just a whisker wide, made you realize this was a defender with other qualities, too. He had to grow into a man very quickly in international football. In doing so, he has attracted the Premier League suitors.
Mepham earned his £12m move into the top flight. Rodon is destined to follow suit. At 22 years of age apiece, Mepham and Rodon, who shone together for the Welsh under-21s, can be the center-back foundation upon which the senior side is built for the next decade.
They complement one another, Rodon dominant in the air Mepham concentrated effort up around him nicking interceptions reading the game. And, of course they can each distribute from the back with those sounded passes.
