EPL: If you don’t want to play, I’ll pick another person – Guardiola tells Rodri

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has hinted that he is ready to drop Rodri from his starting XI.

Following their 3-3 draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday, Rodri admitted he was “tired”.

“Every one of us can do better, even myself, but we need to rest to be honest,” the Spaniard said.

“I do. I do need a rest.”

Guardiola was asked about Rodri’s comments on Friday.

He responded: “If a player doesn’t want to play, he’s not going to play. If he’s tired, feel exhausted, it can happen – another player is going to play.

“I will have to rest central defenders but we don’t have them. We cannot rest.”
