Manchester City star Rodri Hernandez says he disagrees with his former manager Diego Simeone over the lack of defensive quality in the Premier League.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone recently said that if he were to manage in the Premier League, he would stand a good chance of winning it because most teams are bad in defense.
Ahead of Spain’s match with Cyprus, Manchester City midfielder Rodri was asked about Simeone’s comments.
He told Cadena SER: “Here I disagree with Diego. But I also tell you that he may be right because not all teams play in the same way. I play in a team that I guarantee you, they defend for 90 minutes. In all games. So it is not my case. ”
“But hey, maybe other teams do play more one-on-one and can leave more space, but it is a league that I think is quite hard, defensive and tough,” Rodri explained.
Rodri joined Manchester City from Atletico in 2019 and since has won three Premier League titles.
