FABREGAS: PEDRI SHOULD LEARN TO TAKE CARE OF HIMSELF
Barcelona youngster Pedri is under the spotlight after his exploits for both his club and country this season. The young midfielder had a long season after playing in several competitions including La Liga, club cup games, the Champions League, as well as the Euros and the Olympic games for Spain. He played across 73 games in all competitions this season and many people have questioned why he was not allowed to get some rest in between those competitions and whether it will not affect him later in his career. After playing in the final of the Olympics but unfortunately unable to help his team win gold, he was asked if he will be taking a holiday but insisted that he will do whatever Barca want him to.
His dedication and desire to play football have been applauded but people have said that they are more concerned about the long-term implications it might have in his career in the long run. Pedri has already been complimented by some great players including the legendary Barcelona duo Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta, who he has been likened to for his style of play.
Iniesta lauded the youngster and insisted that the youngster is on his way to becoming a great player for Barcelona and a legend for Spain if he continues developing his abilities the way he has been doing this summer. He has also been praised by former Barca midfielder Cesc Fabregas but the former Chelsea midfielder also had some advice for the young attacking midfielder.
Cesc Fabregas urged Pedri to learn to take care of himself and try to also take a rest whenever he's tired to avoid long-term fatigue because it's something that he's too young for. Fabregas also urged him to continue being the top player he is currently.
