This Thursday, midfielder Pedri lamented the departure of coach Ronald Koeman from Barcelona and thanked the coach.
“I feel like things didn’t go our way, mister. I will always be grateful for everything you have done for me: for trusting me from the first moment and for the opportunity to make my dream come true at Barcelona. I wish you the best both personally and professionally,” wrote the 18-year-old on Instagram.
Koeman left Barça last Wednesday, after defeat for o Rayo Vallecano by 1 to 0. The Dutch commander was already being challenged since the beginning of the season, both for the team’s performance on the field, as for the negative results.
Pedri arrived at the Catalan club in July 2020 and debuted on September 27, in a 4-0 victory over Villarreal. The coach at the time was precisely Koeman, who put the young athlete on the field 25 minutes into the complementary stage. So far, the player has played 56 matches, scoring four goals and six assists.
With the departure of the Dutchman, Barcelona approaching a hit with the idol Xavi, who commands Al Sadd from Qatar. Already Sergi Barjuan will be at the edge of the lawn as interim coach in the next clashes. The Catalan team returns to the field on Saturday, at 4 pm (GMT), when it receives Alavés for the Spanish Championship.
