Manchester City star Rodri reveals reason for missing goals after Everton Rocket


City closed the gap at the top of the stack to three points with a convincing victory over the Toffees in the Premier League, with goals from Raheem Sterling, Rodri and Bernardo Silva sealing points for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Rodri has been widely praised for his role in Manchester City’s superb start to the campaign despite criticism for his performances in his first two seasons since joining the club in the summer of 2019.

However, since the start of the year, the Spain international has established himself as one of the first names on the Premier League champions’ roster with a series of exemplary performances in the heart of the midfielder.

The 25-year-old scored against Everton on Sunday, where he was among the best players on the pitch alongside Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva.

“I’m very happy with my goal, I don’t score a lot”, said the midfielder in his post-match interview.

The Spain international went on to allude to the reason for his lack of scoring opportunities for Pep Guardiola’s side, explaining, “A lot of times I don’t get a chance to shoot casually, but at that point I felt it, a kind of rocket.

“I am very happy because the goal was a beauty. It’s always difficult after the international break. The audience realized how good we are at this point in the season. I think we are exceptional at the moment. “

After a superb performance against Everton, Rodri and Manchester City will focus on the Champions League midweek, as Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain come to town on Wednesday.

A win against the French side would take first place in Group A for the Manchester club as they look to replicate and potentially better last season’s run to the final.
