Rodolfo Pizarro

Rodolfo Pizarro was born on February 15th, 1994 in Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico. He began his career with Orinegros de Ciudad Madero and later joined the Pachuca Youth System in 2011. He played right-back when he made his debut in 2012 and he scored his first goal in early 2013. After eventually winning the Clausura Championship in 2016, it was time for him to move on to Guadalajara.

Pizarro made his debut for Guadalajara in January of 2017 and the team went on to win the Clausura 2017 Copa MX Final. The team would double its reason to celebrate when they also won the Clausura Championship as Pizarro played a pivotal role in the team’s success. In 2018, the team would again be champions and Pizarro won the Best Young Player award. He was truly beginning to flourish. In 2018, he would transfer to Monterrey for $16 million—it was the most expensive transfer in Liga MX history. He would be reunited with his former Pachuca manager, Diego Alonso.

After a lot of back and forth, Inter Miami was finally born in Major League Soccer. Pizarro left Monterrey for the newly formed Inter Miami and once again was being coached by Diego Alonso in the Magic City. In 13 appearances, Pizarro has scored 3 goals and has become a vital piece for the team, and for a city that has long showed it was hungry for a local soccer team. The team is now theirs and it is up to the fans to come out and support Inter Miami and Rodolfo Pizarro for years to come.
