The Spain boss Luis Enrique has called for a comparison between Barcelona's youngster Pedri and former club captain Andres Iniesta.
The two have unavoidable comparisons due to their similarities in position and style of play, and they also represent a club team and a national team.
The comparisons follow 18-year-old Pedri being called up to the national team for the first time ahead of this month's World Cup qualifiers against Greece, Georgia and Kosovo.
La Roja boss Luis Enrique told a press conference on Monday, in quotes carried byEl Mundo Deportivo
Pedri and Iniesta are two different players. Pedri must be allowed to continue making mistakes and getting everything right
“He is very humble and works and I have known him from his time in the Under-21 team but they are two different players.”
Pedri joined Blaugrana last summer in a € 5 million move from Las Palmas and is considered one of the best youth products in Spanish football, quickly establishing himself as one of Barcelona's first team's mainstays.
