According to a report by the Daily Mail, via Man City Xtra, manager Pep Guardiola sees club record signing Rodrigo as a ‘key facet’ of his side’s style of play and integral to the Sky Blues’ system – prompting many supporters to disagree and voice their own opinions on the Spaniard.
Rodrigo, who has been a mainstay for City in midfield this season, often one of the first names on the team sheet, has attracted mixed opinions overall since he moved to Manchester for a club record fee.
Is Rodrigo the ideal heir to Man City legend Fernandinho?
Yes, give him time
No, not combative enough
Despite some brilliant moments, such as scoring the Sky Blues’ second goal against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup final last season, not to mention the odd screamer like his thunderbolt against Burnley, some fans believe the £121,000-per-week ace is not what City need as an ideal heir to Fernandinho.
After Guardiola’s alleged stance was revealed, he attracted even more debate from supporters – find all of their verdicts from Twitter down below.
