Barcelona midfielder Pedri: 2 years ago I was playing for Las Palmas

Barcelona midfielder Pedri admits he's still pinching himself over his progress these past two seasons.

Pedri is currently away with the Spain squad this week.

He said, "Two years ago I played in Las Palmas. I try to enjoy little by little what is happening. It is sheer madness. It's what I wanted since I was little.

"I am aware of it (expectations). I take it very calmly, I try to take weight off myself and it shows in the National Team and in the team."

On being compared with Andres Iniesta, Pedri also said: "It is a pride that they compare you with your idol. It means that you are doing things well and I take it as motivation to continue working every day."
