Chelsea winger, Pedro, could potentially be sent home from France following the his latest comments regarding his role in the Spanish squad.
“Taking on this role is difficult for me and if you can’t see any prospect of a regular game it isn’t worth carrying on coming [just] to be part of the group and to be with your team-mates.”
To make matters worse, Pedro’s comments come after Vincente Del Bosque came out and said the former Barcelona man was sorry for his comments, only for Pedro to come out again and basically say he isn’t?.
Del Bosque’s defence of Pedro is potentially the most amazingly brilliant, yet bafflingly, excuse ever offered by a manager.
“I think he’s been involuntarily betrayed by own sub-conscious. I don’t think we should be too harsh.”
Pedro has only played nine minutes in France for Spain so far, so you can understand his remarks. But then you remember that he a) plays for world’s best footballing country b) had a pretty awful season for Chelsea and c) the likes of Morata, Koke and Vasquez are ahead of him, players of undoubted quality.
This is the second controversial story involving Pedro in a week, with the Spanish international having to backtrack over recent comments regarding wanting a return to Barcelona.
“Hopefully [I can return to Barcelona], I know it’s difficult, I spoke with the president when we saw each other at the Cup final and I also spoke with all the people who love me there. It’s complicated, but I’ve always said I would like to retire at Barca.”
Rumours suggest that Del Bosque is currently contemplating whether to send the 28-year-old home from the Spanish squad. The second potential exit of the tournament for the Spaniards, following recent allegations and rumours made towards David de Gea.
