Rodri received a red card as a result of his altercation with Gibbs-White.
Rodri was awarded a red card for an argument with Morgan Gibbs-White during Manchester City’s game against Nottingham Forest.
Pep Guardiola’s team appeared to be cruising at halftime, 2-0 up due to goals from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland, but a moment of lunacy from Rodri seconds after the interval saw City relegated to ten men.
In a fit of rage, the Spaniard collided with the Forest midfielder near the corner flag and grabbed Gibbs-White by the neck.
Rodri was given his marching orders by referee Anthony Taylor following a brief VAR review, which means he will miss City’s crucial encounter against Arsenal in just over two weeks.
Former referee Mike Dean commented on the incident on Sky Sports, saying, “He goes down a bit theatrically, Gibbs-White, but when you see it from another angle, when you look, he has pushed him in the neck, hence the reason why I think he’s sent him off.”
