When you’re playing the way Pedri is, the media’s attention is simply inevitable. And the young footballer deserves all the possible plaudits in the world, especially after such a gigantic performance against Real Sociedad just a couple of nights ago.
This morning, the world is still revolving purely around him. SPORT say the 18-year-old is becoming a starter at the club and there’s no denying it anymore.
The youngster has fully adapted to the Barça game and is now forming a great connection with Lionel Messi on the pitch, which is essential for the team to move forward. At the moment, as it seems, Pedri is already ahead of Philippe Coutinho in the pecking order.
Mundo Deportivo are also discussing the youngster’s newfound connection with Messi. The outlet even has the data to back up that claim.
Against La Real, Leo passed the ball to Pedri eight times while the young midfielder sent the ball the Argentine’s way 10 times on the night, more than to any other teammate on the pitch.
So this could very well be a start of a great partnership and one that the fans should be very excited about.
