Fans have a hilarious theory as to why Rodri got sent off vs Nottingham Forest

Fans jokingly think they know why Rodri saw red mist as he was sent off following his clash with Morgan Gibbs-White.

Rodri picked up a red card in Manchester City's 2-0 win over Forest at the Etihad last weekend.

He raised his hands and pushed Gibbs-White following an altercation by the corner flag moments after the break.

The Spaniard was shown a red card by match referee Anthony Taylor. The incident was reviewed by VAR, but the decision was upheld.



He missed last night's Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle United and will be unavailable the Blues' Premier League fixtures against Wolves and Arsenal.

A video of Rodri revealing the ways he relaxes has since surfaced online, with fans making the correlation with his sending off.

He said he watches Netflix series to relax, saying he's been watching Top Boy.


All of a sudden, people online hilariously think his red card now makes sense.


One X user joked: "He was ready to SQUEEZE OF ON DA MAN."

A second said: "Get him watching the crown or something man."

A third added: "From Top man to bad boy, our Rodri. We're banning you from anything to do with Top Boy until the end of the season."

Rodri's red card against Forest angered Pep Guardiola, who said the star midfielder needs to learn.


"Hopefully Rodri will learn," he said. "He had to control himself and his emotions. I can get a yellow card, but Rodri can't. I don't play - the guys who do have to be careful.

"Kyle has done this in the past - they know they shouldn't do it - but it is emotions. Whatever happens, you have to control yourself. I am angry, because I don't like playing with 10 men.

"I said to the players at half-time to be careful because of what had happened in the last 10 minutes [of the first half] but we fell into the trap."
