Rodri reveals secret to Man City’s historic Premier League triumph


Rodri stated that the mentality within the Manchester City team was what set them apart as they won a historic fourth consecutive Premier League title after defeating West Ham United 3-1 on Sunday.

The 2023-24 hunt for the title was a three-horse race that included Arsenal and Liverpool, the Citizens however came out on top, finishing two points clear of the Gunners.

Mikel Arteta’s men put City under pressure towards the tail end of the season but the men in Sky Blue were able to prevail, claiming an all-important first win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in their penultimate fixture.

Rodri was at the heart of this fantastic run to the title which he says the team deserved.

“Mentality. We have the best players and one of the best generations I have seen in Europe but the only way to achieve this is every day,” Rodri told the club website.

“It’s the toughest thing in football to keep winning. We won at Tottenham away and we never won there.

“Last nine games we must win because of Arsenal. We are so excited about what we have achieved but the repercussion of what we have done, the change of the history of the club, we will realise in a few years.

“I am very proud of the way I grow in this league and this team from the first year to now. The way I build my winning mentality. I am very proud of myself, my family, my team-mates. We deserve it because of all the effort we put in right until the end.”

Meanwhile, Erling Haaland, who finished as the Premier League Golden Boot winner for the second season in a row, explained how tough it was to win the title.

“[The Premier League has] been harder than expected,” the Norwegian said.

“Every game, the way every game is not far away from a final. You come away somewhere and even at home you have to be 90 minutes. You can’t relax after 45 minutes.

“Every game is so intense and tough.”

He added: “It’s fantastic, beautiful and I’m enjoying it.

“I think after we won at Spurs, we kind of knew we were going to do it. We come at home with the pressure and everything, I was confident.

“We had done a little extra [after the Club World Cup] because that’s when it really matters. I’m happy.”

Manchester City will now turn their attention to the FA Cup final on Saturday when they face rivals Manchester United at Wembley.
