Manchester City and Spain midfielder Rodri sat down with AS to talk all things City. As part of the chat with AS, he discussed team-mate Erling Haaland among other subjects.
“At the beginning, I noticed he was very anxious,” he said. “He understood that we were a different team and he knew that he wasn’t going to be involved [in the play] so much, that he should wait for the moment to finish. These are things that you have to adapt and learn. Now he is much more positive. He says: ‘Rodri, control of the game, control of the game. Forget about me’. That’s understanding the team. He’s improved a lot in coming to receive and in going into the space.”
“We can’t forget that he’s a 22/23-year-old with the inquisitiveness that comes with someone at his age. He’s really kind, really cheerful, he speaks about everything, he’s just a brilliant guy. And above all, he has a hunger to improve, to always be ready. In that sense, he reminds me of Cristiano and Messi.”
