Football Has Not Been Fair To Man City – Rodri
Manchester City midfielder Rodri claims “football has not been fair” to the Blues on the back of their 5-2 defeat to “lucky” Leicester.
The Foxes headed to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday looking to extend their perfect start to the 2020-21 campaign and collected a notable scalp in stunning fashion.
Jamie Vardy, last season’s Premier League Golden Boot winner, was once again the star of the show for Brendan Rodgers’ side as he helped himself to a hat-trick.
Two of his efforts came from the spot, with Leicester winning three penalties in total during a remarkable contest that had seen former Foxes star Riyad Mahrez open the scoring inside four minutes.
City’s inability to contain Vardy and co ultimately proved to be their undoing, but Rodri feels the final scoreline was unjust as the hosts offered much more to the contest as a whole.
The Spaniard told BBC Radio 5 Live:
“For me, they were lucky.
“Football has not been fair to us. Maybe it is our fault, maybe it is their strength – but it is very difficult to explain.
“We did a lot of good things to win the game. A team like Leicester comes here and plays with 11 guys behind the ball.
“I am young and try to learn every game, but games like this – where the opposition do nothing – you are a bit confused. It’s not the way I like to play.”
