The former Real Madrid boss considers the Barcelona starlet as ‘the revelation’ of the Euros.

Spain

were knocked out of the Euros after being defeated by

Italy

last week. However, Luis Enrique’s young squad were praised by many observers as they managed to reach the semi-finals despite not being considered among the elite favorites. Barcelona star

Pedri

was singled out by

Fabio Capello

for his impressive performances at the tournament.

He told

Marca

:

“I am very happy for him (Luis Enrique).

“Spain have played very, very well, and over all, he has realised the base for the next tournaments.

“He has built a very young national team with a big future, where, for certain, includes the revelation of the tournament: Pedri.

“He is simply a spectacular footballer.”

Pedri, who featured in all of Barcelona's La Liga matches in the 2020-21 season, made six appearances for Spain in their Euro 2020 campaign. The Barcelona starlet is also set to play for Spain U23 in the Tokyo Olympics this summer. After the tournament, the 18-year-old will have one week to prepare himself for Barcelona’s first matchday of the next season.
