Speaking in an interview with ‘Tu diràs’ on RAC1, Barcelona midfielder Pedri discussed several topics.

On Lionel Messi’s renewal

I don’t talk about it with him. It’s a decision he has to make. I hope he stays for many more years, but it’s positive that the results are good. It’s clear that Messi is happier. He is a magnificent person.

On Ronald Koeman

He surprised me because I didn’t think he was the way he is. He takes a chance on youth team players. I would like him to continue and if not I wish him all the luck in the world. He has given me a lot of confidence.

The day of the presentation I was in a restaurant, where I greeted him and he told me that he didn’t know me well and that I had to prove myself. Now he has given me confidence and I thank him for that.

On Gerard Piqué

He’s one of the funniest guys in the dressing room. He is one of the pillars and if he has to tell you something he tells you straight.

On Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappé

They are both very good but you also have to look at what’s best for the club.
