Pep Guardiola backs Rodri to be successful in management

Pep Guardiola expressed his belief that Manchester City’s midfield talent, Rodri, has the potential to become a top manager in the future.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola praised Rodri‘s abilities and highlighted his importance to the team ahead of their upcoming Premier League clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the match, the Catalan coach said: “He is a really, really important player. But not just Rodri to make a good process, we need the contribution from everyone.

Guardiola added, “Yeah, always we try to figure out how good he will settle with us. He was playing in a big team, he was with Villarreal, and they play well and then after he was at Atletico Madrid, a top team. When you take players from those environments you expect to get someone who is well educated and has personality – but you never know. All teams make mistakes. there are many thousands of reasons why sometimes it doesn’t work. Rodri was a young boy, but now with the experience and the games he has played, he has become a top-class player.”

When asked whether Rodri could follow in the footsteps of his former players Xavi and Xabi Alonso by becoming a manager in the future, Guardiola responded: “He can be yeah – always I had the theory good holding midfielders can become good managers because they have to see the game in the whole perspective. It depends on the desire they have to do it, of course.”

Following their encounter with the Premier League leaders, the reigning English champions are set to face Newcastle United in the FA Cup quarter-final on March 16.
