The FC Barcelona striker anticipates a “complicated” match this Saturday against the Asturian team.
This hasn’t been an easy season for Pedro. He’s sustained up to three injuries this year. In fact, he hasn’t played an entire game since December 22nd, when Barça thumped Hospitalet 9-0 at the Camp Nou. However, the striker says he’s back to full strength: “it’s true that I’ve had a couple of injuries, but I’m well now, with more confidence and rhythm. I hope to play more minutes and be able to help the team, it depends on the manager though, he has the last word.”
Pedro isn’t convinced that Barça’s Liga title bid is over: “the truth is that we are 10 points behind. We have to try and not lose anymore and wait for Madrid to drop points to cut into their lead. If their lead increases, the league will be very complicated. We won’t give up on this title and we’ll fight until the end. We’re doing particularly well at the moment.”
Pedro also talked about Vicente del Bosque’s Spanish national side team for the friendly against Venezuela. “We all like to play for the national team, but Del Bosque called on other players this time. There are still a lot of matches and months left. We’ll have to see how all the players finish the season. I’m calm about it,” he said. (via FCBarcelona.com)
