Rodri's raring to go

‘Rodri’ stepped out on to the Ashton Gate Stadium turf for the first time on signing and declared himself ready to help take the Robins to ‘first place’.

The Spanish striker has joined until January with the option to sign an extension until the end of the season.

And speaking to Robins TV, the former La Liga frontman said: “It’s my job to score goals and I will try my best for this club and this team and I want them to be in first place.

“My first impressions of the manager are that I think he is a good coach and a good person and that’s very important for me. I want to thank him for the opportunity to play in England again.”

Rodi has experience in the Bundesliga and England, having had a six-month spell with Sheffield Wednesday in the 2012/13 campaign, where he played against City in the August of that season.      

“I am really happy to be in England again. It’s a new opportunity for me to show my football and I’m excited to start playing,” he said.

“I think the English league suits my style of football and I can help the club - together we will enjoy this season.”

Rodri could make his Ashton Gate debut next Wednesday when the Robins entertain Charlton Athletic (October 23rd, 7.45pm KO).

“The stadium is very nice and it is a very friendly club and I love that. Our fans are massive and I am really excited about playing in front of them,” he added.
