Roma midfielder Villar hails Pedro early season impact: He plays like a 22 year-old

Roma midfielder Gonzalo Villar has hailed the early season impact of Pedro.

The former Chelsea attacker joined Roma in a Bosman deal this summer.

Villar said, "He has always played and scored two goals, he doesn't seem to be his age - but he seems to be 22 like me.

"A player like him is also important for a player like Carles Perez, who can learn a lot by seeing these players as well as (Edin) Dzeko in front of him."

Roma meet Young Boys in their Europa League opener tonight.
