Rodriguez Returns | Oxford United Football Club

Oxford United are pleased to announce the signing of Alex Rodriguez Gorrin on a short-term deal.

Alex needs little introduction to United fans having been with the U’s from 2019 until this summer. Two long-term injuries meant he missed much of the last two seasons but, having battled back to full fitness, he has been training with the club for the last couple of months.

“I feel good and want to thank the Gaffer for this opportunity” Alex told “Since the end of last season the club have been brilliant with me. I came in for pre-season and worked with the medical team to make sure my rehab was totally complete, and then trained with the squad to get my fitness back. I’ve had one or two games behind closed doors to get match sharp and feel strong and ready to go. 

“Oxford United is a very special club. The team is doing so well, and I want to do whatever I can to help that continue.” 

Liam Manning told us: “Alex is a fantastic character. The way he has fought his way back to fitness speaks volumes about his mental strength and attitude. We helped him get fit and he has since trained really well. Having someone with his experience and ability who can slot straight into the squad and strengthens our options works for all concerned.” 

Head of Recruitment, Ed Waldron, added: “We know what a fully fit Alex Gorrin adds to the squad. This is a great deal for both parties as Alex gets a chance to put his injury problems behind him and we get a proven player at this level. With one or two knocks and illnesses this week we talked about adding a little extra depth and he is available to play immediately.”
