- Rodri bagged his degree in Business Studies and Economics at University while he played at Villarreal
- The Manchester City star is now rounding up with his Business Administration and Management studies
- Despite earning a whopping £120,000-a-week, the youngster stays in a dorm room
Manchester City star Hernandez famously called ‘Rodri’ is wrapping up his Business Administration and Management studies.
The 24-year-old has so far played more minutes than any player under Pep Guardiola during this campaign despite also attending classes.
It was gathered that the key for Rodri has always been education, but he has also made time to focus on his footballing career.
The Spaniard had studied Business Studies and Economics at University during his stint with La Liga club Villarreal.
In a chat with Spanish outlet Marca via SPORTbible, Rodri’s friend Valentine Henarejo stated that people in the player’s dorm were shocked he was playing in the English topflight. He said:
"People were shocked when they saw Rodri, who was playing in the top flight but still living at the university residence.
"After the first few days of getting to know him, there was normality. He shared a space with everyone, he liked being with his friends and sitting on the sofa with everyone.
"But, of course, at the start it was strange seeing him playing table tennis or doing his washing."
He could have quite easily have had a plus flat of his own but Rodri is not motivated by money or materials.
At one point, his vehicle of choice was a second-hand Vauxhall Corsa he bought off an elderly woman.
He completed a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid to become Pep Guardiola’s second summer signing after Angelino in 2019.
Rodri who could not hide his love for the Etihad Stadium, believes the Premier League champions is the perfect place to continue his development.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona captain Lionel Messi is reportedly shopping for an apartment in Paris, the French capital, ahead of his potential bid to join Paris Saint-Germain.
The 33-year-old whose contract with the Catalan giants lapses at the end of the season remains linked with a move away from the club.
He is yet to renew his contract with the club as reports say he will only wait until the season ends before deciding his future.
