As it stands Manchester City’s midfield general is without a doubt the best midfielder in world football. He makes the treble winners tick and is a calming presence for the entire team. Without him, City aren’t the same team as this season has shown. Pep Guardiola’s side have lost every game the midfielder has missed this season. No other midfielder in world football has the influence that Rodri has on their team.
Pep Guardiola has managed some elite midfielders during his managerial career. Xavi, Andres Iniesta, and Kevin De Bruyne are just some of the midfield stars Guardiola has managed. Rodri has earned his place in such an elite group of midfielders.
