Sport: He admitted during Friday’s press conference that the star has asked for a break, and that he might get his request granted, according to The Mail.

– Absolutely. Completely correct. It’s getting worse, worse and worse, Guardiola said of Rodri’s situation.

Manchester City are still involved in three tournaments and again have a very tight and tough program ahead. Alongside the entry into the Premier League, there is a second leg in the Champions League quarter-final next week, and on 20 April there is a semi-final in the FA Cup.

Erling Braut Haaland and his teammates are also fighting with Liverpool and Arsenal for the Premier League title. The team is one point behind with seven league rounds left to play.

Manchester City host Luton on Saturday and the return match against Real Madrid awaits next week.

– I haven’t spoken to Rodri myself, but if you need rest, he gets rest. Or, no, I don’t know. I had the feeling that he was tired in the games against Crystal Palace and Real Madrid, then he got better in the second half, said Guardiola.
