Rodrygo: “I’m very happy to take Real Madrid to the Champions League final.”

Speaking to Movistar after Real Madrid’s historic win over Manchester City on Wednesday, Rodrygo gave his thoughts on the dramatic victory.

“I can’t explain it, I don’t even have words to explain what happened today. God looked at me and said: ‘Today is your day’. I’m very happy to take Madrid to where they have to be, which is in the Champions League final.”

“I wasn’t even listening to what my team-mates were saying to me, because I couldn’t believe what was happening. I don’t know when my first goal was. We were already dead, and what happened happened. I know they came to congratulate me and I’m very happy.

“With this shirt, we learn to fight until the end. We were almost dead, but with my first goal, we started to believe a little. We had come from behind in other games. After my first goal, we scored the other one. I’m very happy.

“I think the Champions League is where I’m at my best and I hope to continue scoring many more times.”
