'Under Pep’s order to injure him': Arsenal fans slam Rodri over tackle on Odegaard
Arsenal fans have dragged Rodri for a harsh tackle on Martin Odegaard during Spain's 3-0 win over Norway in the Euro 2024 qualifiers on Saturday.
Dani Olmo gave the hosts the lead after 13 minutes. Moments later, Odegaard was put through on goal, only to be disrupted by Rodri's heavy challenge.
Rory Talks Football: "Absolutely horrible foul from Rodri on Odegaard. Incredibly, no penalty given. Rodri under Pep’s orders to injure our captain?"
Being An American Whore: "This Rodri bitch went into two footed on Odegaard".
Scrappy Tweets: "With no penalty after the hasty tackle from Rodri. Pep masterclass to injure Ø innit".
Le African Gunner: "I’m convinced Pep Guardiola instructed Rodri to take out Odegaard from the face of the Earth".
VIP Arsenal: "It just had to be Rodri to make that tackle on Odegaard during Arsenal Man City race. Thankfully he's fine."
It is easy to see why faithful are angry. Arsenal currently lead Man City by eight points in the Premier League race.
