Rodri penalty wasn't convincing but we'll work on a penalty specialist - Guardiola

Share This
Pep Guardiola has given his opinion on Rodri penalty against Tottenham Hotspur. 
The midfielder scored, his spot-kick which gave City the lead in the first half but Guardiola admitted it was far from convincing.


The former Atletico Madrid midfielder stepped up to take the penalty - awarded after a foul on Ilkay Gundogan - after the German had missed from 12 yards at Anfield last week. 

"Is Rodri the taker now? No," Guardiola told the BBC.

"I would say I admire the courage to take the penalty, but it was not a good penalty.

"I am not laughing; I am concerned about this.

"We will have a real specialist to take them with quality. We have to practice."

Recall that after Gündogan penalty moss at Anfield, The Manchester City boss had speculated Ederson would be taking a penalty. 

Ederson provided the assist for Gundogan's second goal against Spurs with a 60 yard pass. 

"When I talk about Ederson and penalties, you see his assist, 60-70 yards, well then he will score from 12 yards!" Guardiola added.

"For the quality of the shot Ederson is the best, but a penalty is different. I am delighted for Rodri, for the courage to take it.

"I have to reflect. The Champions League is coming, Everton in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup - and we don't have a real specialist to take a penalty, that is the reality."
