Pedri, a mix between Xavi Hernández and Iniesta when these were 18 years old. Like this ensured it Jordi Cruyff after analysing the victory against the Real Sociedad
Jordi Cruyff analysed the moment of form of the Barça after defeating to the leader of LaLiga, Real Sociedad, with marker of 2-1. "It has loved me the first part. In general lines, think that the Barcelona has deserved to win, but when you finish with this feeling to having suffered the last 20 minutes is just what do not want to, always want to finish the parties with this feeling that this is the line to be followed", exposed Cruyff on the triumph of the ones of Koeman.
Likewise, it referred to one of the young jewels of the Barcelona club, Pedri González: "Has wood and potential to arrive to the top. Sometimes we forget us that we can not compare one that finish to fulfil 18 years with an Iniesta or Xavi when they were in the ceiling of his career. If we look to Iniesta and Xavi when had 18 and compare it with Pedri, I would say that they were very up the three. It is one of the greater talents that have seen in quite a lot of time".
His comparison with the mythical midfield players of the Barça, corresponds with what has showed Pedri in field during this difficult season, where he has been big protagonist in the fight of the team for achieving the triumph that drive it to be followed adding in the domestic tournament.
Cruyff Also did reference to Antoine Griezmann, who failed a chance clear of goal: "The problem is not to fail. Fail, fail all those that throw. The problem is when fail, if you do it with 3-0 does not happen at all, if you go adjusted the pellet has to go in to resolve the party".
Also it stood out the depth of the staff of the Barcelona, afterwards that the team have been completed with pair of players of the Barça B: Mingueza and Araujo, in the centre of the defence. "The problem is when have three players in defence that the three are so young, the key is the balance. Koeman Has two options, complain because the staff is not balanced or try throw to a positive side, that is what is doing", aimed Cruyff.
Laporta Surprised to Cruyff
Before finalising his exhibition, Cruyff referred to the coming elections of the club, in which Joan Laporta stood out for deploying a big canvas beside Santiago Bernabéu like part of his campaign. "I have had to it look a pair of times. Of this that say, this is real or no? With the difficulties that is happening the Barcelona, is a moment that surely to a lot of fans will have given him a dowry of positividad".
