While hailing the newcomer Rodri’s goal, the Spaniard said: “Always he help us, you know in these kind of situations. I think he adjust and suit perfect for this league. Honestly.”
Then came the slip of tongue.
“…And I think Bayern Munich – ai ai [facepalm]. Man City bought… uh… Bayern Munich? What the f***! Man City… I don’t know what I thought.”
Interestingly Rodri, who arrived at Manchester this season from Atlético Madrid, was previously linked with Pep’s Bayern when he was at Villarreal.
Along with Rodri, Gabriel Jesus scored a brace, along with Riyad Mahrez to put the Citizens 4-0 till the 89th minute, when the single consolation goal for the Clarets came from Robert Brady.
