Rodri He showed his worst version against Nottingham Forest and made life very complicated City of Manchester in the first minute of the first half after being sent off after a completely wrong reaction.
The Spanish, key to the first goal of those Guardiola and this Manchester City engine, He will receive a 3-match suspension for aggressive behavior after getting involved in an inexplicable mess with Gibbs White.
It all happened in the 46th minute, when Rodri He protects a ball in the corner and the English playmaker is under pressure to try to steal. It seems like nothing exaggerated happened but the La Roja international acted aggressively and faced the Gibbs Whitewhich he pushed twice, both by the neck, until the Englishman seized the opportunity and fell to the ground.
The referee did not hesitate Anthony Taylor with red being shown and the replay showing that Rodri’s hands had gone to Gibbs-White’s neck, something that is highly penalized in the Premier League.
One red more than for Pep Guardiola, and the three games the Spaniard has missed are really important. First is a League Cup duel against Newcastle but the real focus is the latter, compared to Arsenal in the Emirates. Manchester City will certainly appeal, but it seems difficult for the FA to pay attention to it because of the images.
