Man City midfielder Rodri: Manchester and Madrid football culture similar

Manchester City midfielder Rodri says the football culture inside Manchester is similar to Madrid.

Rodri left Atletico Madrid for City three seasons ago.

“I think yes (there are comparisons) because in Madrid you have the rivalry between Madrid and Atletico and then here I arrive and there is the same rivalry against United," he said.

“You have lots of big teams with rivalries.

“The atmosphere of the city and the rivalries. Everything and, of course, you have to adapt yourself in a new country, new food, new everything and new weather, of course."
