Rodri may have literally forgotten what it’s like to lose.

The Manchester City midfielder has reached an incredible milestone, having made it 365 days without defeat for his club.

Incredible stat shows why Rodri is Pep Guardiola’s star man over Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne


Rodri’s phenomenal year included the Champions League match-winner and four other trophies

The Spaniard’s last loss in sky blue was on February 5 2023, coming in a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham.

Since that day he’s racked up a whopping 42 wins, ten draws and five titles.

That included a Champions League final match-winner and City’s first-ever European Super Cup and Club World Cup.

His only defeat in that period was with Spain a month later in Nations League against Scotland and he showed how much he can’t stand losing with a slightly petty outburst about the victors’ tactics.

That’s a barely noticeable blotch on an impeccable record which has seen Rodri ranked as the best midfielder in the world by many, and the best player in the world by some.

Some of his Man City teammates continue to take the spotlight, namely Erling Haaland, but the Norwegian can’t compare, losing five games in the same time period.

Despite his record, Rodri was left out of the FIFA FIFPro Men’s World 11, with teammates Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne in midfield alongside Jude Bellingham.

Asked about his lack of recognition after his treble-winning season with City, Rodri said: “I have said it many times, individual awards are things that we players can control. 

Rodri's last 365 days have been nothing short of incredible

“If I’m honest, it’s not something I think about a lot. I am a player who is fulfilled by collective titles and everything that comes after that is welcome. 

“But I’m not worried about whether I’m in the eleven or not. There are already people who value me and me them. 

“That there are people who value or don’t know how to value what one is capable of doing… Obviously, last year, for me, was unbeatable, incredible. I have been in many elevens and this one did not affect me.”
