At FC Barcelona Pedri is already undisputed regularly with his 19 years. The midfielder could have landed at Real Madrid. But the royal ones were him as not good enough, as he reported in an interview.

“One day, I think they just played, taking me with the B team for training. In the end they told me that I was not good enough to play there and that they would continue to watch me,” saying Pedri at CADENA COPE from the basket of the royal at a trial training.

After all, he was not angry. Finally, he took him a little later Barcelona under contract, where the international breakthrough succeeded. “First you do not like it when you’re rejected somewhere, but then it motivates one to think that if you are not wanted now, you can do something else in the future,” Pedri continued.

At the Catalans, he has now found his sporty home. “I do not know who refused me, but if I see him, I would tell him that I feel good now in Barcelona,” said Pedri. “Now I’m here where I want to be.”

For Barca, the Spanish national player was already on the lawn this season, where he scored three goals and gave an assist. His contract with the Catalans was recently extended until 2026.
