 Pedri has formed a squad that includes many Barcelona legends past and present, along with a Real Madrid player.

Barca’s latest training session

The prodigy of Barcelona and Spain, Pedri, raised some eyebrows when he included teammate Eric Garcia in the best team ever combining Barca and Real.

Garcia has made a good impression after a rather erratic start since moving to Barca from Manchester City in the summer and is now a regular fixture. And he has certainly impressed Pedri, who has filled the defender’s name into an all-legendary squad. Pedri joked when asked to choose El Clasico’s best XI: “Can I pick them all from Barcelona?”

 Pedri is Barca’s hope.

And the squad he picked was really like that: ” [Marc Andre] ter Stegen, Eric Garcia, who to me is crazy about the ball, and [Gerard] Pique. At right-back is Dani Alves, he’s a good friend Jordi [Alba] on the left is Busi [Sergio Busquets], Ronaldinho is farther and Xavi Iniesta is on the left side of attack, so he can drift. inside, on the right is Messi and Cristiano in the front.”

Pedri’s choices clearly demonstrate his allegiance to the Blaugrana, but it clearly has great sentimentality. CR7 is the only name from Real to be included in Pedri’s squad because of his undeniable excellence. Garcia’s appearance caused more people to reflect. There was no room for Sergio Ramos, but even Pedri did not choose the great Barca captain, Carles Puyol.

In fact, Pedri’s loyalty could have been on the opposite side. Before moving to Camp Nou, the midfielder also had a trial for Madrid, and he admits that he has not forgotten being rejected by the White Vultures: “I went there and in the first days, I did not I couldn’t train because it was snowing on the field. I trained for three days. People said I wasn’t good enough to be there and they would keep looking at me.”

“Now I’m where I want to be. At first, you don’t like being rejected anywhere, but then it’s motivating to think that if they don’t want you, you’re going to have to work hard for someone else to. I don’t remember who turned me down, if I met him I would tell him I’m having a great time in Barcelona.”
