Rabat – F.C. Barcelona’s former player, Pedro Rodriguez, said that he feels like a new man with renewed confidence since moving to F.C. Chelsea last month.
The 28-year old athlete, who won 20 titles with Barcelona and scored 99 goals, pointed out that playing with Chelsea and having more minutes on the pitch will allow him to grow as a player.
”When you have more minutes and play on your team, you have another rhythm, another trust and a different mentality, so the selection and Chelsea have been very good for me to continue growing as a player,” the Spanish international said according to EFE.
Pedro, who transferred to Chelsea for a reported £22 million, made history with Barcelona when he won 6 titles in 2009, becoming the first player in history to score in every competition. Pedro’s goals were instrumental in helping his former team win the Spanish League, the Spanish Copa Del Rey, the Champions League, the Spanish Super Cup, the European Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Following his national team’s match against Slovakia, Rodríguez stood up for his former teammate, Victor Valdés, Manchester United’s goalkeeper, who is going through a difficult time with his coach Luis Van Gaal.
“It is true that I don’t like to see my teammates treated this way, especially Victor, who has always been a great friend to me and a top professional,” Pedro said.
