Mikel Obi rates unbelievable Man City star Rodri higher than Premier League legends Roy Keane, Vieira
Nigeria's Mikel Obi waxes lyrical about Manchester City's Rodri and compares him to Premier League legends Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira.

FOOTBALL David De Gea aims dig at Roy Keane after sarcastically telling Bruno Fernandes he ‘is not the right captain’
David de Gea told Bruno Fernandes "you are not the right captain" in what appeared to be a dig at Roy Keane.

Following Bruno Fernandes' performance in the Manchester derby, Roy Keane unleashed a scathing attack on the Manchester United player.
"Or we can get in the ring for £1 million each and fight it out! Eddie [Hearn], if you're watching. Eddie Hearn, get him on the phone.
"Roy, come on. You're better than that. And I promise to stop reacting."
The latest verbal spat began when Roy Keane asserted that McAteer was entitled to the elbow.
He said, "He deserved it. I wouldn't go that far [calling Mcateer his team-mate]. Just cause you play with somebody doesn't mean that you are mates.
"Do you know what, what used to get to me is players who shout their mouths off. I didn't mind lads kicking me up [and] booting me, honestly. But Mcateer, as usual, had plenty to say for himself.
"I didn't deserve to be sent off in that game, absolutely not. If you ever look back in it, I didn't even catch him."
Mcateer, who still seemed to be upset about the incident from 21 years ago, retaliated against the Sky Sports star by pointing out how ironic it was that Keane was now a paid speaker.
McAteer tweeted: "Love it. Players shouting their mouths off!!! Funny You can’t shut the clown up now. And no we weren’t teammates cause he never showed up and when he did he went home!!!! Please!!!!! Bore off."
One of the Manchester United legend's eleven career red cards came from elbowing McAteer during a game in August 2002 between United and Sunderland.
