BARCELONA YOUNGSTER GETS HUGE PRAISE FROM XAVI

Barcelona’s young midfielder Pedri is currently one of the best young prospects in the world of football and he has been getting a lot of praise for his performances on the pitch so far. Pedri had a break-out season at the Spanish La Liga giants last season where he featured in a lot of games for the club and he continued to grow from strength to strength, earning the continued trust of Barca manager Ronald Koeman. In what was a hugely successful season for him, he earned his first professional call-up to the Spain national team after getting a call from Spain head coach Luis Enrique to join the rest of the Spain squad in preparation for their Euros campaign.
