Leeds boss Jesse Marsch was happy to see Rodrigo on the scoresheet for their 2-2 draw at Southampton.
Marsch was asked about what Rodrigo brings to his system after the St Mary's clash.
He said, "The goals are one thing but for me even more so the quality at which he's playing, the clarity, the tactical awareness, the discipline, the work rate. He's putting new full performances together.
Again, I could go through each one of the guys right now and say, there's still so much more that they can continue to develop into so that's a good feeling. I think we sense in our group that we have positive momentum and a good thing going but we can't be complacent and in some ways maybe that's what this is, it's a little bit more for us to know that as good as it's been in the early stages we have a lot more to do.
"I think the idea was that maybe we could challenge their backline with Dan's speed, but we weren't getting enough of that. Dan had a big chance at the end of the first half that maybe would have rewarded that idea. But then I just felt like making the rotation of putting Rodri in a more dangerous spot putting Brenden in the middle to help find pockets in their team and also to help press and win balls and then Dan in the right flank to be a little bit more aggressive to be running in the deep and being vertical.
"Rodri, obviously, I thought the first goal was a really good goal, a really good connection between him and Jack and Brenden, I thought was fantastic."
