Speaking to The Times, Xavi Hernández gave his thoughts on Lionel Messi’s departure from Barcelona and Pedri.

Xavi can see similarities between Pedri and Barcelona legend Andrés Iniesta, who spent 16 years in the club’s first team.

“Pedri is unbelievable. The kid has Iniesta’s profile of a player, for sure. Watching him play at his age, doing what he does, leaves you with the only answer: he’ll be great. He already is so impressive, but he can be even better.”
