Following Leicester City’s incredible and fully deserved win away at Manchester City, Citizens midfielder Rodri called the loss unfair as well as saying the Foxes were lucky.

Manchester City were quite clearly outthought, outfoxed, outclassed and outdone by Brendan Rodgers’ tactical nous. Along with the Northern Irishman’s team’s talent and commitment to the game plan. In the end, the contest wasn’t even close; as Jamie Vardy claimed a hat-trick, Youri Tielemans netted once and James Maddison scored a tremendous goal.

Though that didn’t stop short-pass spammer, Rodri of Man City, suggesting that the Foxes were lucky and his side were badly treated by ‘football’. Just after being heavily defeated, the Spanish international says his City did well, while the other City play with 11-men behind the ball.

The Spaniard was also mentioned twice post game, with Jamie Vardy explaining how the East Midlanders wanted to stop the midfielder dictating from deep. However, ironically, former Citizens defender Micah Richards explained his negative thoughts on Rodri’s unadventurous nature.

Not all pampered and privileged stars conduct themselves with the petulance and entitlement of 24 year old, but he labelling the loss as unfair for the Sky Blue is out-of-touch. A bad loser, if ever there were one.

Up next for Rodgers’ men is West Ham United. The Hammers haven’t started 2020/21 as well as they’d like, but will provide a decent test for Leicester City. Although, the Premier League leaders will be confident they can overcome the East Londoners’ challenge.
