Pedri Gonzalez sat down with SPORT in an interview which revealed his maturity despite being just 17. He spoke about life on the pitch at Barcelona, but also about some more personal issues, as seen in this section here: 

Are there any jokes in the dressing room about being the youngest in the squad?

A lot. They tell me that when the older players speak, the kids keep quiet (laughs). In the dressing room, I speak when I have something to say, but I prefer to stay quiet doing my own thing. 

Do you speak a bit more in the WhatsApp group?

No, no! I speak very little (laughs). 

Who do you get on best with in the dressing room?

I speak most with Trincao. We arrived together, started training together and were in the same hotel. I get on really well with him. He's the one I get on best with. 

How is it being so far away from your parents for the first team?

We speak a lot and I feel their affection from Tenerife even though they're far away. But after the game, I always tell them not to call me. If I am happy, I will talk to them. And, if not, we will speak the next day (laughs). 

Have you done some tourism in Barcelona?

Very little, to be honest. I saw some things when my family came. But because of COVID I am staying at home. I think it's what we all have to do to have a return to normality as soon as possible. 

How do you stay distracted at home?

I am always with a ball, that hasn't changed. Now I have the teqball table and I play against my brother. Normally I win, but sometimes he beats me. I don't like to lose at anything. 

What's the last film you saw?

Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown. I have seen it four or five times but I love it.
