Rodri dismantles Arsenal players’ mentality in brutal interview after winning Premier League title

Rodri dismantles Arsenal players’ mentality in brutal interview after winning Premier League title

The star slammed City's title rivals.

Rodri brutally dismantled Arsenal players' mentality after Manchester City cliched the Premier League title.

On Sunday Man City beat West Ham 3-1 to become the first side in history to win four English top flight titles in succession.

City knew a win would see them pip Arsenal to the title, and raced into an early lead thanks to a stunning strike from Phil Foden.

The Premier League Player of the Season soon added his second, before Rodri gave City breathing space after Mohamed Kudus had pulled a goal back with a superb overhead kick.

Arsenal did their job in beating Everton 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium, but unfortunately for Mikel Arteta's side, the Hammers did not do them a favour.

This season the Gunners hung in the title race until the very end, an improvement on their title bid last season.

Yet despite that, City star Rodri highlighted the difference in mentality between the two clubs as a reason why City were able to make history.

When asked how City keep winning titles, the Spaniard told Optus Sport: "It's the mentality. Great players are all over the league, at all the clubs. Arsenal also, they did an unbelievable season.

"But I think the difference was here [the mentality]. When Arsenal came here at the Etihad, I saw them. Ah, these guys, they don’t want to beat us, they just want to draw. And that mentality, we wouldn’t do it the same way…"

Arsenal held City to a goalless at the Etihad back in March, with Arteta's side completely changing their approach to successfully stop City's free-scoring attack.

While that result kept Arsenal a point ahead of City in the table, they went on to drop points and City overtook them.
