No wonder star winger Pedro who joined Chelsea for £21 million pounds in this past summer has expressed his disappointment to a friend.
According to reports, a source close to the Spaniard claims the winger regrets making the move to Stamford Bridge last summer. This has most likely affected his confidence, as he has failed to show his class for the blues since joining them from Barcelona and he will be hoping to improve his form.
It is believed that his fellow Spain international Cesc Fabregas had a big role to play in Pedro’s move to Stamford Bridge. The link up play the pair had during their time at Barcelona has failed partially due to Fabregas decline in form.
Even though Pedro’s debut is one to remember after he scored a brace against West Brom, injury has since hampered his progress in the premier league and he hasn’t looked his best since.
According to football insider, a source close to the Spaniard claims;
“He (Pedro) was persuaded to move to Chelsea by Fabregas, but now he regrets doing so. Pedro believes the teams playing style is too functional and does not play to his strengths. He did not think the attacking players were given enough freedom under Jose Mourinho. That mi8ght change under Guus Hiddink but it is too early to tell.” The source added.
When interviewed by the Mirror in October, Pedro admitted that he will take time to adjust to the challenges of the premier league and the playing style of England was quiet difficult to adapt to;
“It’s hard. It’s very different to what I’m used to (at Barcelona)”,
He (Pedro) told the Mirror.
“But, little by little, I’m integrating more, adapting with my team-mates and the team and that’s the most important thing. Everything is different, very different to the football am used to. I think there are a lot of differences, very physical football, very strong. A lot of players attack and it’s always complicated. All the games are competitive and very balanced.” He concluded.
