Failing to win a regular starting place under Diego Simeone, questions have risen about his private life for many and this week those questions have risen again.
A photo has emerged of de Paul supposedly at the Latin Billboard awards night in Miami on Thursday, with girlfriend Tini Stoessel, as per Sport. He had been given permission to miss this week’s training with Atleti due to personal reasons and as a result, is not in their squad to face Sevilla this weekend.
❗️ Rodrigo De Paul spotted in Miami with Martina ‘Tini’ Stoessel attending a music awards event.
The player asked for permission from the club for ‘personal reasons’ and except for a surprise, he will miss tomorrow’s game against Sevilla.

Those personal reasons were supposedly to be with his father, who is seriously ill. Since the photo has emerged, Atleti fans have piled on de Paul on social media.
According to Goal however, the photo is not from Thursday night. The well-connected Ruben Uria reports that the photo of de Paul and Stoessel corresponds to a free night that de Paul had when he was with the Argentine squad for their international friendlies last week.
