Pedro 'I hope our FIFA break doesn't affect Barça' >> Read My Mind


Pedro: 'I hope our trip with our National Teams doesn't affect FC Barcelona. It's always hard to recover fitness, we played many minutes in a very few days, trips were long'

Pedro: 'I hope our trip with our National Teams doesn't affect FC Barcelona. It's always hard to recover fitness, we played many minutes in a very few days, trips were long'

Pedro: 'The team has trained well, we are fully confident and in good shape. Racing have a great team and we expect a good game at the Camp Nou and to keep collecting points. Those who have been with our national teams are recovering strength, but I’m sure we’ll be ready in time for this game'

Pedro: 'It is a privilege that so many players are picked for their national teams'

- I understand our players have an obligation and desire to do well representing their countries but, from a Barça point of view, FIFA breaks are a disaster: We pay our footballers' wages while they are away, don't get compensation if they get injured or any benefits from ticket revenues or shirt sales.

By the way, Xavi comes back after being substituted with pain, Abidal played despite being injured!!!
