Sports Bible, a sports media outlet, reported on the 23rd

“Rodri, who was replaced by an injury, broke his silence in the process of Manchester City’s victory over Fluminense in the Club World Cup.”

Manchester City defeated Pluminesse 4-0 in the Club World Cup final at King Abdulrah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Sunday (Korea time). Everything was fine for Manchester City, but Rodri was injured.

During a ball contest with replacement Alexander in the 23rd minute of the second half, Alexander made a two-footed tackle and Rodri’s leg went through it, causing his knee to turn and collapse. Rodri limped off, but despite concerns over a serious injury, he confirmed he could play in his next Premier League game against Everton.

Rodri told Sky Sports News: “I was lucky today to be honest. I think it’s one of the worst tackles [to me] has ever been done in my career. I was so scared because I felt the pain in my knee, but fortunately it was nothing. I told the player he shouldn’t make these tackles.”

He continued, “Today I got more than a trophy. I’m coming home safely. Honestly, I almost cried because I was worried about what would happen. It was painful because it was such a dramatic situation. But it doesn’t matter.”

Rodri appeared in 56 games in all of the last season’s tournaments as an irreplaceable resource within the team. He has played more than anyone on his team and has played a total of 4,465 minutes in the league. Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes is the only Premier League player to play more than 5,000 minutes.

Rodri said, “I don’t remember exactly how many games I played, but I spoke with the club and the manager because it was unhealthy. I’m young now, but I may not be able to do this when I’m 31 or 31. You have to watch your physical condition because 60 games is not the best for a player. Also, the season is getting longer every year. I have to adapt to it.” 메이저사이트

Another reason why Rodri plays a lot as an irreplaceable resource is that Calvin Phillips is not doing his job. Phillips was expected to move from Leeds to Manchester City last season, but he is in the midst of a record-breaking run.

Rodri’s absence was also seen in the game against Aston Villa. Rodri and Grealish were sidelined due to accumulated warnings after receiving their fifth warning of the season against Tottenham, which ended 3:3. Rodri was warned of a foul on a prisoner, and Grealish was warned of a delay in time.

Also, because there was no Rodri, the quality of the defensive midfielder who would protect the center back was poor, and because there was no circulation of Rodri’s ball, he was dragged to Aston Villa unilaterally all day long.

Fortunately, Rodri was not injured, and Manchester City was able to continue its good atmosphere.
