Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne praised new signing Rodri after he featured in his official debut for the Premier League champions against Liverpool in the Community Shield.
The former Atletico Madrid man was solid in his central defensive midfielder role against Liverpool and also earned the approval of boss Pep Guardiola.
De Bruyne believes City have done a great job in the transfer market in the last few years and Rodri has been a perfect fit at his position.
“He’s a perfect fit for us. I think the way that we did transfers the last years add up,” he said, according to Goal.
“You see a lot of young talent coming in willing to play our style. I think that’s what they’re looking for and he’s a perfect fit for us.
“I think he’s the perfect [defensive midfielder] for the way we want to play.
“Our DM is a really difficult position. You need certain players for it and there’s not a lot of people who can do both sides of it.
“Obviously we’re very good on the ball. You can’t just be defensive, you have to be offensive also.”
