Rodri revealed how Manchester City worked their way out of a declining start to the new season with a notable team meeting.
Rodri disclosed information on how an essential team-talk aided Manchester City to bounce back in the Premier League title race.
It was evident that Pep Guardiola’s side was striving to get back in touch during the early phase of the 2020-21 campaign. In spite of some stellar performances in the European competitions, City looked dull in the domestic league.
However, the Cityzens have made a major comeback since December and have taken charge of the table. Rodri could not help but speak about a special team meeting that took place at Etihad Stadium which changed things drastically.
“In the first period of the season, we weren’t playing well individually and collectively. But this changed once we got together and spoke more about how we could work together,” Rodri told Sky Sports.
“We had a meeting and talked to each other. We analysed what was happening and how the team could do better.”
“We all agreed that every player could do a little bit more for the team. I feel it’s the reason why we’re doing so well right now as there are lots of players who are currently playing at an incredible level.”
“We aren’t thinking too much about this,” he continued. “We know we’re in the final of the Carabao Cup. We’re ahead in the Premier League. And we’re still in two other competitions – the Champions League and the FA Cup.”
“Of course, we can achieve it. But the idea is just to play the next game and to not think too much about it.”
“If we can keep the level and rhythm then we can do it. We’ve shown it in the past few years. And, while we’re not focused on this, we have the dream of having an unbelievable season.”
