Pedri Back to Training with the Ball – Expected for El Clasico

Pedri

At FC Barcelona, good news is always appreciated. The most recent development is no exception. Prior to this, Barcelona’s great player Pedri from Spain had been sidelined due to an injury to his right thigh and had no clue how long he would be out.

Faster Recovery for Pedri

Within a few days of the player’s injury, early medical evaluations indicated that he could be sidelined for a month to two. Only lately have Barcelona supporters heard encouraging rumors that he would return in time for the match against Real Madrid in the first official El Clasico of the season at the Montjuic Stadium.

Furthermore, as time goes on, such claims appear to be coming true faster and faster. The most recent information on Pedri is that he is working out with a ball at his feet.
Players are often close to returning when they begin working out with a ball. In Pedri’s situation, Barcelona will probably exercise additional caution. The squad’s occasional desperate misses of his ingenuity make this huge news for them.

A Comeback that Requires Effort

The former Golden Boy and Kopa Trophy winner will thrill to return and make his point. Pedri will have stiff competition for his spot in the team from players like Gavi, Ilkay Gundogan, Fermin Lopez, Oriol Romeu, and even the injured Frenkie De Jong.
Although Pedri’s comeback is unquestionably fantastic news for Xavi, it also poses a serious conundrum. It will be up to the Barcelona coach to put together his best lineup and formation.

The return of Pedri, perhaps one of the game’s most brilliant players, will undoubtedly help FC Barcelona and its supporters. When the young player wearing the legendary number eight shirt returns in full, there will be high expectations of him.
