En la entrevista, además, Pedri explica cómo está viviendo estos primeros días en Barcelona y cómo se definiría él como futbolista. Estas son sus declaraciones más destacadas:
His first days as a Barça player
"I've been welcomed very well and I'm very happy. I'm really happy to have this opportunity."
"Training at the Ciutat Esportiva is a luxury. I hope that I can enjoy the facilities for many years. I've been amazed."
"Right away, from the moment I met my teammates, I've felt really good. Trincao and I, for example, have got on very well. Likewise, with Matheus. I am really looking forward to enjoying time with all of my teammates, and learning from them."
Pedri as a player
"I feel comfortable playing in the hole, although it's true that I've played on the wing -on both sides. It's good to be versatile. That's important for a player, because it means the coach can use you in other positions."
"Playing for Las Palmas was good for me, as playing in the Segunda División -a tough league- has meant I have gained confidence."
"Passing football is my best virtue. My aim is to make the others play, and enjoy playing football."
"I'm not focusing on breaking any record. I want to enjoy my daily work, do what I like and improve."
"My main objective is to debut, first of all. I haven't done that yet, and I'm looking forward to it. I have to improve and work hard to do that. Whatever my debut is, I will always remember it. It will be the most special day of my life, because I've always dreamed of that."
