‘This man needs to be humbled’, ‘He thinks we’re Man Utd’ – Many fans react as Atletico Madrid Star Reveals Chats With Man City man


Atletico Madrid star Koke has revealed that he has fired a warning to Manchester City midfielder Rodri ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash while they were part of the Spain national camp.

The Blues welcome the Madrid side to the Etihad, which will be the first of two legs at the quarter-final stage of the competition.

Ahead of Tuesday’s game, Atletico Madrid star Koke has revealed that he warned Rodri to expect a different challenge to what they have faced in the Premier League and that he is sure his side will win come Tuesday.

Asked whether he talked with Rodri about the quarter-finals clash, Koke told Spanish daily AS: “Yes, of course in the national camp.

“He admitted to me that it was going to be a very tough match.

“[He said] ‘we have many games like this in the Premier League.’

“’Yeah, but Atleti are not in the Premier League,” I warned him”, Koke laughed.

“He told me that it was going to be strange for him to play at Wanda Metropolitano, he is very fond of Atleti.

“I already told him that we are going to win for sure, and that he already knows what Atleti are like.”

Koke added that Rodri has developed a lot as a player under Pep Guardiola’s tutelage and stressed the Manchester City star has also learned a lot from Barcelona man Sergio Busquets in the Spain national team set-up.

“In the national team he also learns a lot from Busquets, who I think is the benchmark and is the best there [in the defensive midfield role]. I have seen him grow a lot [at Manchester City]. But here at Atleti, I have done the same.”

These Koke’s comments were shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
