This.Rodri as advertised, a Busquets type more than a Ferna type. He just needs time to understand our system better so he’s a step ahead positionally. Plus he’ll hardly ever be surrounded by these players. Cut him some slack.
It is not pace he is lacking it is an understanding of the players around him, the system and positional sense. He is not a fast hard pressing fernandinho. He just needs to sharpen up understand his role and team mates more all which comes with time and experience.
