Barcelona’s young midfielder, Pedri, has shared his thoughts on the events following the Blaugrana’s triumphant victory at the RCDE Stadium. In doing so, he inadvertently emphasized the unfortunate situation surrounding Espanyol.
The talented player alluded to the need for swiftness in escaping not only the opposition players but also the fervent Espanyol supporters. The disconcerting incident of fans invading the pitch cast a shadow over an otherwise memorable evening that witnessed six goals and Barcelona being crowned champions. The unauthorized pitch invasion instilled fear and panic among those present.
Pedri clarified during his appearance on ‘El Hormiguero’ that the team’s celebration on the pitch was not intended as a display of disrespect.
Pedri’s Hopes for a City-Inter Final and Thoughts on Xavi’s Coaching Style
In a light-hearted interview, Pedri was asked about his preferences for the Champions League final, where he openly expressed his desire to see arch-rivals Real Madrid eliminated from the competition. He made it clear that he would rather see Manchester City reach the final, noting his admiration for Pep Guardiola’s style of play.
Reflecting on a successful season that saw him secure his first LaLiga Santander title while Xavi won as a coach, Pedri highlighted the close relationship between the players and the head coach. He described Xavi as a person who is approachable and understands the players’ perspective, having been a player himself. Pedri admitted that he has received a few reprimands from Xavi, who sometimes begins calmly but gradually raises his voice. Pedri understands the need to listen and avoid getting into trouble, so he simply nods and remains silent in those instances.
