Barcelona signing Pedri happy to focus on Las Palmas

Barcelona signing Pedri insists his only focus is with Las Palmas.

The 16 year-old first teamer signed for Barca in August, though remains on-loan with Las Palmas.

"First I have to think about the Depor match before leaving with the National Team. We have to take out the three points anyway and then I'll think about the National Team. The (U17) World Cup is a goal," said Pedri, who is grateful to Pepe Mel for giving him his senior chance.

He added: "I know it is not easy to bet on a 16 year old boy and he did it.

"My father has always told me that the important thing is humility, if the head is lost, the player is lost. You have to follow that closely."
