Rodri gives honest interview saying how bad he was despite scoring the Champions League winning goal
| Last updated
Rodri scored the Champions League winning goal for Manchester City but he was hilariously honest about how he played against Inter Milan.
Two years ago City had their first chance to be crowned champions of Europe when they took on Chelsea in their first final in the competition.
When Pep Guardiola's side lost that game there was lots of talk about the manager having fallen foul of 'overthinking' his tactical plans.
That was because he went into the game against his Premier League rivals without Rodri or Fernandinho in the centre of midfield.
Two years later and there was to be no repeat with Rodri, now considered the best defensive midfielder in the world by many, an obvious starter against Inter.
The Premier League champions certainly didn't have everything their own way in the first hour and may have even gone behind if it wasn't for Ederson's save.
However just minutes after that moment it was Rodri who scored the only goal of the game, getting on the end of Bernardo Silva's deflected cross to bend the ball into the bottom corner.
At the full time whistle Rodri was obviously the hero of the match but speaking on BT Sport he openly admitted he felt he'd played "s**t."
"I'm emotional, it's a dream could true," the former Atletico Madrid understandably said.
"...I don't want to forget about the lads, I mean we give everything. My head was in the clouds, it was an unbelievable effort from everyone.
"I wasn't good in the first half, I was playing s**t to be honest and then, this talks about the mentality, I just said to myself I have to overcome this and at the end I scored a goal, unbelievable."
Speaking about the final he missed, the 26-year-old added: "I said to Pep 'you have to put me in.' Nah but seriously, in that moment I supported my teammates.
"So this is for all of them, all the players from the past, all of these players who made the club big and this is also for them."
Jack Grealish was similarly criticial of his own performance on the night and the forward was extremely emotional at full time.
