Some football fans have expressed disagreement with the praise given by Arsenal playmaker Kai Havertz to Manchester City star Rodri.

In an interview with GoalGlobal on TikTok, Havertz was asked to create his ultimate footballer by selecting a different star for each trait.

He chose Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the left foot and right foot, respectively, Kylian Mbappe for his pace and skill, and Brazilian forward Hulk for his strength.

However, there was controversy surrounding his selection of Rodri for his football IQ, which led to criticism from viewers in the comments.

Following the interview, many football fans expressed their disagreement with the selection of Rodri.

Some fans suggested that other players such as Zidane, Xavi, Cruyff, Iniesta, Pirlo, Messi, Kevin De Bruyne, Luka Modric, David Silva, Mesut Ozil, or Thomas Muller should have been picked instead of Rodri.

However, supporters of Rodri pointed out that he has displayed exceptional intelligence and influence on the field, especially for City.

It has been argued that over the past year, Rodri has proven to be an incredibly intelligent footballer with unrivaled IQ on the pitch.

Being the lynchpin of a treble-winning Pep Guardiola side has earned him acclaim, and his immense influence on the team cannot be overlooked.

He has been regarded as City’s most important player, being the one to stitch it all together and make the team tick.

Furthermore, Rodri has not suffered defeat in 90 minutes over the past year, and City have lost in the games he was not available for this season. His crucial goals, including a Champions League final-winning strike, have further solidified his importance to the team.

Regardless of the controversy surrounding Havertz’s pick, the argument in favor of Rodri’s football IQ and influence on Manchester City is supported by his performance and achievements on the field.
