“I think in terms of reaching the final and having teams in the Champions League and Europa League finals, yes,” said the midfielder.
“The same thing happened six years ago, it was the Spanish league with Real, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

“I know the Premier League and it gets stronger and stronger and stronger every time. I always say that here in England we have the little super league, in the sense that we have great teams.”
The 24-year-old admitted he hadn’t spoken to his family for days after the winner Kai defeated Havertz City in Portugal.
But Rodri insisted that Pep Guardiola’s squad is once again ready for the start of their campaign against RB Leipzig on Wednesday night at the Etihad Stadium.
“It’s a dream for many of us to win, but it’s not mandatory,” he added. “It’s such an incredible tournament, but only one team wins it.

“I would sign right now to reach another final. It’s not easy, it was the first time in our history and you have to do a lot of things to get into that situation.
“You have three fucking days in the next few days, you can’t even talk to your family and friends. They are there to support you, but your face is not the way you want it to be.
“You move on and in defeat you learn more than in victories. The players adapt very quickly and we can focus on the next goals. You play football every three days, so there’s no chance to celebrate or cry.’
