"“There are things that cannot be explained.“Yesterday afternoon I was surprised. He did individual training and today he had no problems.“We’ll see in tomorrow’s training session. I think he can be on the list.”Source Goal"

The midfielder has been integral for the Catalans this season. Koeman chose to trust the youngsters this season and Pedri has been one of the standouts. He has shown incredible passion and determination and has rightfully cemented his name in the first team sheet.

Having already made 37 appearances for Barcelona at the age of only 18 years, shows that the player has something special. Koeman will definitely want to use him in the upcoming  Copa del Rey match and he will surely make his presence count.
