Man City midfielder Rodri: I'm not Busquets, I am Rodrigo Hernández

Manchester City midfielder Rodri is keen to avoid comparisons with Spain teammate Sergi Busquets.

Rodri is acting as cover for the Barcelona veteran in Spain's Euros squad.

He said, “We're similar in our games. I always try to learn from Busquets. I am Rodrigo Hernández, I have always been Rodrigo Hernández."

On the Euros, Rodri also remarked: “A bit like the season itself. With City, we had to adapt things. It's been a very, very demanding year in terms of games, the volume of matches, the physical needs. Whoever adapts the best will have the best chance at the Euros too. I think there will be different results, unusual ones.

"That would make sense, given everything: the preparation hasn't been what it would usually be, the context isn't the same, the stadiums aren't full. I think we'll see a very close competition."
