The Blaugrana striker Pedro reckons that Cesc Fabregas’ arrival has made Chelsea’s midfield immensely strong and they would be a team to watch out for in the European Cup next season.
The Blues have spent a big amount of 27 million Pounds to bring Fabregas at Stamford Bridge and according to Pedro, that’s going to benefit them a lot.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Pedro said, “Cesc is all class. He’s a tremendous playmaker. As a striker, you want a player like him in the XI because you know if he is around, you are always going to get scoring opportunities.”
“We are close buddies. Apart from Barcelona, we have played alongside each other for Spain as well. I think he is going to make Chelsea a very strong side.”
Pedro also said that the punishment that has been imposed on the club’s new signing Luis Suarez seems to be a bit harsh and the officials are trying to get it a bit softened.
When asked about Suarez, the 27-year Old Spaniard said, “It (the punishment) looks like a little too harsh. We are looking into it. But, in case we don’t get any relief, we will have to wait for the ban period to get over.”
“Luis’ signing is fantastic news for everybody including the fans as well as the players. He is going to get enormous support here if he performs up to his level. There are not too many better than him in the game at the moment.”
Suarez was a great hit at Liverpool scoring 69 in 110 league games. But, his behaviour there was not the best as he always remained in some sort of controversy. Barcelona definitely would want a bit of improvement from him on that front.
