One of Barcelona’s biggest jewels, Pedri, has finally turned 18. The youngster’s coming of age must have been a highly anticipated moment and it seems it hasn’t exactly gone unnoticed by any of his teammates.
Just a couple of days ago, the Catalans travelled to Kyiv and secured their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a convincing victory over their hosts. But, according to SPORT, there was much more happening on their way back to Barcelona.
The local outlet states that Antoine Griezmann threw a ‘team party’ on the bus, blasting music and telling jokes – all for the birthday boy Pedri. The atmosphere was excellent and everyone was signing happy birthday and congratulating the youngster.
And since the time zones in Ukraine and Spain are not the same, the team had an extra hour to ‘party’ on their way back and the Frenchman was the main DJ on the night. Still, Pedri got a chance to celebrate privately, SPORT continue, the next day when he was visited by his family.
They had lunch at the player’s house and then he got all kinds of great gifts from everyone. Soon, however, it will once again be time for him to compete on the pitch as Barcelona are still looking to bounce back and start winning in LaLiga.
