World’s Best Defensive Midfielder Receives Red Card for On-Pitch Misconduct in EPL Match


Man City: Rodri to miss Arsenal clash after sending off against Nottingham Forest

In a surprising turn of events during Manchester City’s match versus Nottingham Forest, the world’s top defensive midfielder, Rodri, was shown a straight red card for his misconduct on the pitch. The incident occurred when tensions escalated between Rodri and Morgan Gibbs-White near the corner flag, leading to Rodri using his hands to push his opponent.

Former Premier League referee Mike Dean analyzed the incident and confirmed that Rodri made contact with Gibbs-White’s neck, resulting in the issuance of a red card. Despite a VAR review, the decision stood, and Rodri now faces suspension, which includes missing Manchester City’s crucial Premier League encounter against Arsenal next month.

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, expressed his disappointment with Rodri’s actions and emphasized the need for better emotional control. Guardiola disclosed that Rodri had personally apologized for his behavior but highlighted the importance of learning from this incident.


Guardiola’s concern about playing with ten men was evident as he addressed the situation, acknowledging that Rodri’s actions had let the team down. Guardiola had cautioned his players to be cautious during halftime, but unfortunately, Rodri failed to heed the advice.

As a consequence, Rodri will be ineligible to participate in upcoming fixtures, including Manchester City’s Carabao Cup match against Newcastle, the Premier League game against Wolves, and the highly anticipated clash against Arsenal.

Despite this unexpected turn of events, Manchester City maintained their flawless Premier League record with a convincing 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest. Goals from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland within the first 15 minutes secured the win for the Citizens, leaving fans both impressed by the team’s performance and concerned about Rodri’s absence in future matches.
