Pep Guardiola claims Man City midfielder is best in his position

Manchester City Colwill

Man City are as always going for the title this season as well in the Premier League. They have mostly been consistent in the league and all other competitions. After their Treble winning run last season, one particular player caught the eye of the whole world. And the player in question is Man City midfielder Rodri. He has been outstanding for the Manchester side, even before last season. The Spaniard was crucial in the final of the Champions League as well being the sole scorer for City. Pep Guardiola has recently claimed publicly that the 27 year old is the ‘best midfielder in the world by far’.

Pep Guardiola praised Rodri as the best midfielder

“I would say if the holding midfielder doesn’t get the same appreciation as the strikers or the number 10 then that is good. When a holding midfielder has a lot of appreciation, it is not good,”

He said in an interview, as reported by Metro.co.uk. Then he added,

“The holding midfielder has to play positive, for him and for the team, and make the team play. This is the role for the holding midfielders. All the highlights have to be for the guys up front who score goals and make assists and so on.

“But Rodri always has the ability in important moments to score goals so he’s an unbelievable player. He’s the best midfield player in the world currently by far because he is able to do everything.”

“What a signing. It’s difficult to understand how we could have done what we have done in recent years without him.”

These were the words of the Man City boss regarding his midfielder.

Rodri has been a silent playmaker before this

Rodri has always been a consistent performer in the City side. But his crucial performances last season gave him the limelight. Pep Guardiola always admired the Spanish international, but now he has been vocal about the talent the midfielder possesses.
