INFO RMC SPORT – Argentina’s third international line Pablo Matera, under contract for another year, should pack his bags this summer.
The adventure will end sooner than expected. Arrived in 2019 at the Stade Français after the World Cup disputed as captain with Argentina in Japan, Pablo Matera was committed until 2022.
But according to information from RMC Sport, the third international row (27 years old, 69 caps) should leave the Parisian club at the end of the season. Not to join another Top 14 club as did its now former partner Gaël Fickou, who left for Racing 92, but undoubtedly to evolve in Super Rugby. It would be the preferred track. Parisian managing director Thomas Lombard, whom we contacted, declined to comment.
In Paris, Pablo Matera did not finally play because of the matches played with the selection of Pumas. Since the start of the season, the former Jaguares player has played eleven Top 14 matches in the Stade Français jersey, including seven as the holder.
Matera has also experienced turbulent recent months. Last fall, the Argentinian press brought out several of his racist and xenophobic tweets published between 2010 and 2011. A few weeks later, he apologized and had to explain himself to the press but also to his stadium partners. French.
The capital club, which will play its late match against Racing in the Ile-de-France derby next week (May 1 at 2 p.m.), currently occupies 9th place in the Top 14. On Saturday, Gonzalo Quesda’s men host Pau.
