Dani Rodríguez joins exclusive Mallorca club with strike vs Athletic Club

RCD Mallorca star Dani Rodríguez tonight etched his name firmly into the history books of the club.

As much, of course, came amid the biggest outing of Mallorca’s season to date.

Javier Aguirre’s troops are currently locked in action at the Estadio La Cartuja, in the finale of the 2023/24 Copa del Rey.

After the aforementioned Dani Rodríguez’s opener was cancelled out by Athletic Club’s Oihan Sancet early in the 2nd-half, proceedings in Seville have since been forced to extra-time.

The Copa trophy, as a result, remains firmly up for grabs…

As alluded to above, though, no matter the eventual result on Saturday, one member of Mallorca’s ranks who will depart the action in the knowledge that he has secured history comes in the form of goalscorer Rodríguez.

This comes with the veteran midfielder’s opener against Athletic having seen him join Jovan Stankovic as one of only two players to have ever found the net for the Bermellones in all of La Liga, the Segunda, and the Copa del Rey final.
