One of the bright spots of Barcelona’s rollercoaster season is Pedri. The youngster is such a fun player to watch and his future at Barca should make the fanbase excited.

In an interview with the club’s PR department, Pedri chatted about a few different things. First, he mentioned how lovely it is to play with Lionel Messi.

“Playing with Leo is easy because you give him the ball and you know things will happen,” he said.

“Hopefully I can be around Leo for several years, it would be great to learn alongside him.”

He then talked a bit about the team overall and playing for Ronald Koeman.

“Barça already have idols like Messi, Piqué and many more. The young people who are starting out, like Ansu Fati, Riqui and I need to play at a high level to stay in the first team.”

“The position I like to play most is in midfield. Being behind the striker and being able to give the last pass is something that I like so much. But I’m here for whatever the coach needs and to play in whatever position.”

It’s been a good week for Pedri who’s also been included in the Spain squad for the first time for their World Cup qualifiers at the end of the month.
