Luis Enrique was full of praise for Barcelona midfielder Pedri ahead of Spain's Euro 2020 last-16 match-up with Croatia on Monday.

Pedri, 18, has been an ever-present in La Roja side at the tournament and has shown maturity beyond his years in midfield, as he did for Barça last season.

"There are times when facts define a situation much better than words," Luis Enrique said in a press conference on Sunday when asked about the teenager.

"Pedri is a unique player, totally different to what else we have. He can seem a shy player, but he has humour. He's even a breath of fresh air when he plays table tennis and from what I've seen he's very good at that too."

In his debut season at Barça, Pedri made 52 appearances in all competitions, earning a call up to the Spain squad for the Euros.
