Already the best midfielder in Europe, Rodri has just completed his best season. Perhaps there has been no icing on this cake, as there was when he scored the Citizens’ historic goal in last season’ Champions League final, but his stats again reflect that he continues to grow as he moves away from being a simple defensive midfielder to something more complete, and he has doubled both goals and assists compared with last season. With the national team he is the group’s undisputed leader and the player who embodies and sustains Spain’s belief that they could reach, at least, the final four. “Rodri is the best. In his position he is the best,” Pep Guardiola said recently. “He can do everything. He has the quality to read the game, he has the right mentality, he is always ready. Rodri is top, top. Other teams don’t have players like him. Rodri is very good at many things: he has presence, physical play, everything. He is very complete. He was an incredible signing for City.”
