Lazio winger Pedro has admitted that he’d like to finish his career at Barcelona, where he previously spent seven years and won every trophy. He stated his intention to Betevé.
“If Xavi called me, I’d catch the first flight before even hanging up the phone. But It’s unlikely. I’ve spoken with many people, such as the coach and president Joan Laporta. I’ve tried to arrange a reunion one way or the other, but it’s very complicated. There are many factors in play, especially my age, but I’d love it. It’d be the perfect ending. It’d be spectacular to retire there, but, since I see that as something distant in the future, I’m not really thinking about it.”
Pedro dished on the current state of Barcelona.
“They are in a good spot. They had the luck of grooming youngsters with huge potential like Lamine Yamal, Gavi, Pedri, Alejandro Balde, and Ronald Araujo. They should be the backbone of the squad for a few years. Their problem is comparing eras, which happens often in football. Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha are world-class players, even though perhaps they aren’t regarded so highly internally. Here at Lazio, they often ask me about those talents and how they can make a difference at their age.”
Pedro talked up Xavi.
“I’ve a lot of confidence in him. He always gives his best and has excellent ideas. His models are Pep Guardiola and Johan Cruyff. There are some problems, but things will pan out through calm and hard work.”
