Manchester City midfielder Rodri has declared he wants to be the best defensive midfielder in the world.

“I want to be the best,” Rodri admitted, speaking to The Telegraph.

“That’s my duty every day. I see myself from the first year when I came here to now and I grow a lot. I thought I had good qualities and condition when I came but now I see myself with experience, coaching, what I’ve learned from opponents.

“My aim is to be the best but other people have to decide. I don’t consider myself the same type of player as other holding midfielders. I have my own way of understanding and playing that I think is quite different from Casemiro, Fabinho, N’Golo Kante and these type of players.”
