The youngster from the Canary Islands appears before the press ahead of Barça's clash with Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League
Pedri is one of the names of the moment. The Barça number 16 has already made eight appearances as a blaugrana and has won plaudits for his performances under new coach Ronald Koeman. Ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Dynamo Kyiv, the teenager faced the press remotely at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
“We have to continue as we have done in the last few days but improving in front of goal. We want to get all three points to help us qualify."
The attention of the world
“I have tried to treat it as normal from the start. I have to keep working to improve and keep growing alongside the best. I take it all in my stride as my family have taught me."
“ I want to keep working to have as much playing time as possible”
Concentration on the field
“In training I work on fitness so I can help the full back in games. Calmness is more in the head than from training. I have always had it."
“It's good to play in different positions to help the team wherever. The important thing is to bring as much as you can to the team."
“Where I feel most at home and I can create the most danger is playing just behind the striker."
Scoring in the Champions League
“When a kid's dream comes true, he is happy. I loved that day and I feel happy thinking about it."
“Messi helps us a lot, above all out on the field with his advice. We have to enjoy playing with him and learn from him."
“Messi has helped us [the young players] from the first day. He has been great with us. He gives us advice on and off the field."
The more experienced players
“They all give you the same advice: keep your feet on the ground and work hard every day. It's a privilege to be here and learn from the best."
