Spanish central midfielder Rodri just joined Manchester City from Atletico Madrid, and he is already loved by the coach.

23-year-old Spanish midfielder Rodri started his professional career in 2015 with Villarreal.

Then in 2018, he was transferred to Atletico Madrid, and one year later to Manchester City.

And Citizens’ coach Pep Guardiola believes he’s an “incredible” addition to the club.

“Rodri will be incredible for us,” Guardiola was quoted by Goal.

“He doesn’t have tattoos or earrings. His hair, he looks like a holding midfielder! A holding midfielder must be like this, think about the rest [of the team].”

“We will try. We have to be a little better than the last season. I think we will need to have about 90- points to be champions,” Guardiola added.

“I don’t speak to the guys about needing to win the Premier League. We think about what is next. You focus has to be close.”

“Since I arrived here, and right now, I am not pretending to build the best.”

“If maybe in five, 10, 15, 20 years people can talk about what we have done, then ‘wow’,” Guardiola concluded.
