Pedri has been one of the bright lights for Barcelona this season.

Ronald Koeman

has put the teenager in the three positions across the third line of a 4-2-3-1 as well as in the double pivot and praises him tremoundesly.

The Dutch coach spoke of him before Barcelona’s Champions League match against Juventus tomorrow evening.

I think Pedri has participated in all but one of the games,

Koeman

said.

I think it’s great for a 17-year-old boy [Pedri has just turned 18] and I think he’s done it because he’s deserved it.

"

He can play in several positions depending on the rival and the tactics employed, and he can contribute many things because of his intelligence.

Pedri

wasn't in either of Barca’s last two games, not playing in their winning over Ferencvaros and as a substitute in the loss at Cadiz.

Pedri

’s presence against Cadiz made a marked difference to Barcelona’s performance, and the boy is supposed to be in the starting lineup with Juventus.

If Barcelona pass defeat tomorrow evening they’ll finish first in their Champions League group and guarantee a favorable draw in the last 16.
