Rodrigo Rey (born 8 March 1991 in Las Parejas, Argentina) is an Argentinian professional footballer who plays for PAOK FC as a goalkeeper.


Rey came out of the bowels of the "millionaires" and developed a passion for the sport from an early age. His skills and abilities was the reason to be called in the Argentina U20 for the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup at Colombia. In Monumental, however, River played into difficult times with the club faced a shameful relegation in the second category and coaches experimenting with various goalies who should replace legandary Juan Pablo Carrizo. Having few chances to be part of the starting XI, along with the fact that the "millionaires" decided to buy Marcelo Barovero for $2 million, Rey signed as a free transfer, with Newell's Old Boys in the summer of 2012. In Newell's Old Boys, he was unlucky because he had to overcome Nahuel Guzmán one of the best goalies in the country, along with the fact that the club was competing for the title in Primera División who eventually won and Guzmán was irreplaceable. He knew well that the only solution to unfold his talent was not a top club, but a steady role in a rather smaller club, that's why he chose Godoy Cruz, in which had become one of the symbols of its modern history.[1] [2]

On 7 July 2017, Rodrigo Rey signed a three years' contract to Greek Super league club PAOK FC, for an estimated transfer fee of €1.5 million. The administration of the Greek Cup winners decided to sign the 26-year-old Argentine goalkeeper instead of experienced Mexican international Francisco Guillermo Ochoa Magaña, because he is younger and there is also a strong chance to be called up in his motherland's national team soon.
