Barcelona whizkid Pedri happy learning from Messi

Barcelona whizkid Pedri is happy playing alongside Lionel Messi.

Signed a year ago from Las Palmas, Pedri has shone in his first season as a Barca player.

On Messi, the 17 yer-old midfielder says: "So far very good. He always gives you advice on the pitch, which is what I think a captain has to do and how I think he is, who knows a lot about what he speaks about for everything he has won and has done for football.

"That Messi gives you advice is a pride and I try to always listen to him and learn from him, which will be very good for me."

Pedri also said of improving his goalscoring: "Yes, it is something that I have to improve. Whenever I can, I keep shooting in training; It is something that I have to improve. Also the physical aspect, I am working on it. All this will be better for the future."
