Pedri explains why Barcelona are his perfect club

Pedri has confessed that Barcelona’s desire to play beautiful football fits in perfectly with how he wants to play.

Still only 19 years old, Pedri has already emerged as a key player for club and country, with Barcelona boss Xavi even forced to deny that he was suffering from Pedridependencia – a play on a term which used to revolve around the team’s reliance on Lionel Messi.

Speaking to The Guardian, Pedri admitted that the freedom afforded to Barcelona’s midfielders has helped him reach the level he is at today.

“I would try to play my game wherever I was, but it’s true that I would suffer more elsewhere,” Pedri said when asked if Barcelona are his perfect club.

“Some clubs are satisfied with winning, however they do it. Barcelona wants to win but to do it playing the ball, creating chances, with this idea. I like this football more.
