Rodrygo fuming after being 'deliberately' taken out

‘It’s NOT an accident… he hit me on purpose’: Real Madrid star Rodrygo slams Cadiz defender Rafael Jimenez Jarque for knocking him to the ground off the ball in their LaLiga clash – and says he showed ‘aggression that does not fit in football’

  • Real Madrid beat Cadiz 2-1 in the Spanish top flight on Thursday night
  • Rodrygo was involved in an incident with defender Rafael Jimenez Jarque
  • The Cadiz player swung out with his arm as he attempted to run past him 

Real Madrid starlet Rodrygo was not impressed at all after being taken out during Thursday’s LaLiga clash with Cadiz. 

Madrid won the game but Rodrygo was more concerned with an incident that took place where defender Rafael Jimenez Jarque appeared to purposely swing and hit him with his arm as he was making a run.

The Brazilian went tumbling but the Cadiz man escaped punishment, presumably because the referee missed the off the ball incident.

Speaking on DAZN, he said: ‘I think it’s not an incident, he did it on purpose, he looked at me and hit me.

‘It’s a shame because then he tells me he hasn’t done anything, the VAR is there I don’t know why, it’s a shame.

‘It’s an aggression that does not fit in football.’

In response to a video of the incident, he later added on Twitter: ‘He told me he didn’t do anything,’ with a long series of laughing emoticons.

Rodrygo was left fuming after the incident and was still unhappy following the full-time whistle
