Pep Guardiola not happy with Rodri after red card in Nottingham Forest win.
The Spaniard was branded as the best holding midfielder in Europe by none other than Man City boss Pep Guardiola earlier this week.
Rodri was given marching orders after he was involved in an altercation with Forest’s Morgan Gibbs-White a minute after half-time.
He put his hands around the neck of the English forward and Guardiola was furious at Rodri for leaving City with 10 men.
Rodri will now miss the next three games for Manchester City and the manager had some harsh words for the midfielder after his dismissal.
‘Hopefully Rodri will learn,’ said the Manchester City boss. ‘Rodri has to control himself and his emotions, this he has to do.
‘I can get a yellow card, but Rodri cannot get a yellow card, I don’t play. You have to be careful.
‘Yeah [I am angry with Rodri]. I don’t like to play against 10. I think Rodri has to learn, I’m not saying the red card is not a red card. But it’s emotions, if they try to make a trick you have to control yourself. I cannot control myself, but I do not play.’
