Chelsea winger Pedro Rodriguez created some controversy after he confessed to team-mate Cesc Fabregas in the dressing room that he made a wrong choice by leaving FC Barcelona for Chelsea. The Spanish international also reported to have said that he will return to the Camp Nou any day, with his eyes closed.
Pedro leat the Catalans for English Premier League champions Chelsea due to the lack of first team opportunities at Barcelona hoping that he would enjoy more minutes in the field with the London club.
But Chelsea’s bad start to the season had put things out of order for the Spaniard as Jose Mourinho kept rotating players every week in search of finding the best eleven, with Pedro being one of the victims.
In a comment to his team-mate Cesc Fabregas, Pedro also revealed that he wish to go back to Barcelona since he is is struggling to adapt to the atmosphere at Chelsea and Premier League. It is much different than what he expected and Chelsea can’t be compared with Barcelona.
The 28-year-old ex-Barcelona man’s worry is much owed to Chelsea’s poor performance on-field in the current season and all the off-field controversies created by their manager Jose Mourinho. It is no surprise that he is unsettled at the club at the moment, and also there are various reports on other players being unhappy at the current situation.
Jose Mourinho on the aftermath of defeat to Stoke City in the Capital One cup claimed that his relationship with the players are “fantastic” and he has the complete backing of his players. But so far, the reports coming out of London had done little in backing up the manager’s comments.
On the other hand, Pedro had a perfect chance to join Manchester United this summer, but Chelsea had snatched the Levante born winger from right under the nose of the Red Devils in the 12th hour.
Pressure is looming over Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho as the team is preparing to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool this weekend, with many pundits claiming that failing to win on Saturday will result in the Portuguese manager getting sacked.
A number of high profile names are already being touted to replace Mourinho at the helm of Chelsea, with two of the former Blue’s managers Carlo Ancelotti and Guus Hiddink leading the race. It is also rumored that Chelsea owner Roman Abrahamovic will wait till the international break in November to review the options and make his final decision, rather than sacking the manager right away.
