The best young footballer in the world of 2021 was selected. Absolute Outclassing Football

The almost 19-year-old Pedri is the absolute revelation of the 2020/21 season. The young Spaniard, after a transfer from the second tier Las Palmas, entered the first FC Barcelona squad, quickly becoming a key player of the team. This meant that last season he played as many as 52 matches for his club (4 goals and 6 assists), and then he entered the Spanish national team in an equally good style, with which he reached the Euro 2020 semi-finals.

However, Pedri paid for such a high intensity with muscular injuries that dragged on him in the new competitions. Due to the recent recurrence of his calf injury, the 19-year-old may be sidelined until the end of 2021.

In the Golden Boy contest organized by the Italian “Tuttosport” for the best under-21 footballer in Europe, Pedri was second to none. He scored 318 points, ahead of the second Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund by less than 200 (119).
