Spain international and former Barcelona forward, Pedro Rodriguez is reportedly unhappy at Chelsea. The player who joined Chelsea from Barcelona in the summer for a £21m transfer fee was reported to have expressed his frustration and disappointment to a close friend, according to reports.
The wing forward is reportedly frustrated at Chelsea’s disappointing showing this season and also at the Chelsea style of play. The Premier League defending champions have greatly faltered this season. They have been largely unimpressive this season. Their dismal form have seen them disgracefully lying at the bottom half of the table after 19 games.
A source close to the 28-year old has revealed that the winger ‘regrets’ the move from Barca to Chelsea. Pedro have not had a time to show his class at Chelsea as the team have greatly suffered a huge slump in form, just 7 months after winning the league. The Spaniard will be hoping for a renewed approach from his teammates and an improved performance on a personal level as we step into the second half of the season in the new year.
Cesc Fabregas who is believed to have had a huge impact in Pedro’s move to Chelsea is currently having a bad time at Chelsea as well and even reportedly sought a move away from Stamford Bridge. Fabregas himself have suffered a decline in form , the midfielder who ended last season with 18 assists can hardly spell the word ‘assist’ as he only has four assists so far.
The source said ” He was persuaded to move to Chelsea by Cesc Fabregas, but he now regrets doing so”.
“Pedro believes the team’s playing style is too functional and does not play to his strengths. He did not think the attacking players were given enough freedom under Jose Mourinho. That might change under Guus Hiddink but it is too early to tell.”
Pedro spoke to the mirror in October, admitting it will take time to adapt to the style of play in England. Pedro said, “Its hard, it’s very different to what am used to, but little by little, I’m integrating more, adapting with my teammates and the team and that’s the most important thing.”
“Everything is different, very different to the football I’m used to. I think their are lots of differences, very physical football, very strong. A lot of players attack and it is complicated. All the games are competitive and very balanced.”
Pedro has scored only 3 times and has 3 assists for Chelsea this season, which is arguably far from his best. He has been recently consistent in the Chelsea team and obviously needs to improve, in justification of the huge amount spent on for his services.
