Rodri admits Man City football a culture shock

Manchester City midfielder Rodri admits his move from Atletico Madrid has been a culture shock.

Rodri is stunned by the energy required to play in City's midfield.

"I finish games at City feeling dead," he said.

"If you are constantly taking the initiative in games, as we do, then you have to be constantly moving.

"When you lose the ball, you have to press like crazy to win it back. The physical demands are huge."
