Barcelona worried about Pedri Gonzalez


Barcelona worried about Pedri Gonzalez

The midfielder has not been rested at any point during the last year more or less

Barça contacted the Spanish FA (RFEF) a few days ago to try to free Pedri from his Olympic Games obligation, but they have the power and consider Pedri indispensable in the search for gold in Japan. In this sense, the player has say and basically goes where he is told. His explosion this season has led him to play more than 60 official matches at this point. Untouchable for Koeman at FC Barcelona and a permanent fixture since he debuted with La Roja, the man from Tegueste is young and has exceptional stamina, but that does not mean that there is no concern within Barça. They’re worried about the physical load, but above all about the mental fatigue that the Canarian will suffer.

His life has changed radically in just a few months and that responsibility which he has had to bear (with an astonishing naturalness) worries Barca. Once the Euros is over, he will be able to "enjoy" a few days off before joining De la Fuente with the Olympic team. Spain debuts on July 22 against Egypt. When he finishes the summer in Tokyo, the Tenerife native will have a couple of weeks of vacation to disconnect. He will miss, almost certainly, the first two weeks of the league season. In principle, the RFEF will not call him up in September for games.
