Rodri signed for Manchester City from Atlético not long ago and now he is learning a new method of work. He spoke about his adaption to England, Pep Guardiola and also his move from Atlético.

The player was one of the most high profile exits from Simeone's side. He was key and left a big gap, as well as 70 million euros in Atlético's pockets. In an interview with' 'ESPN', he spoke about his exit from the Spanish capital.

"It wasn't easy because I was very very happy at Atlético. I was at my house with my family, at the team of my dreams. I was playing well. It wasn't easy, but I thought that it was the right moment to take on this challenge and I am very happy to have taken it", he confessed.

He also spoke about how he got uses to life in the Premier League: "It isn't so much the physical side but the rhythm". The play is more physical; it's more box to box, you never stop. It's a new type of football and I have to adapt".

He also spoke about how things are going for Man city: "I won my first trophy very quickly with the Community Shield because the start was good. I think that people must be aware that a lot of things are happening.: we have had a lot of good players missing, we play every three days in three different competitions and we are playing with the same players more or less.
