Pedri reveals biggest lesson he took from Messi

Barcelona starlet Pedri has revealed the biggest lesson he took from Lionel Messi, with an all-time great teaching him how to stay calm on the pitch.

The 19-year-old playmaker, who claimed the prestigious Golden Boy award in 2021, spent one season working alongside Messi at Camp Nou before the Argentine icon departed for Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent. Pedri was hoping to get more opportunities to pick the brains of the seven-time Ballon ‘dOr winner, but feels honoured to have spent any time in his company.

Pedri has told EFE on working alongside an all-time great and the obvious benefits that brought to his game: “Messi used to give us advice on how to be calm during matches. He always told us to feel free on the pitch. Leo Messi is the best player I have ever seen. To have had the chance to play with him is an honour. He always had a great attitude towards me and treated me very well from the moment I met him.”
