Pedri talked about his childhood football journey

Pedri got interested in football when he was in Bajamar. His parents moved to Tegueste when he was just three. 

His father asked him and his brother if they loved playing football. 

His brother said that he didn’t quite enjoy playing football but Pedri said that he would love to play football. 

So, when they got to Tegueste, his father put him in a kid football club. He convinced his brother to join him in the club. 

He said he really enjoyed playing rather than being competitive. He started his training with his coach when he was six. 

He said that his first coach was very supportive and was always there for him. He said that he used to make fun of his coach's bald head and pat his head. 

He added he used to tie up his laces, too, as he was a kid and didn’t know how to tie his laces. 

Then, he turned nine and trained with another coach. His coach knew that he was a special kid as he had qualities that other kids of the same age didn’t have. 

Pedri is very close to his brother

Pedri has a brother named Fernando, who is two years younger than him. They are friends more than brothers. 

They grew up playing and watching movies together. His brother said that Perdi is the most important person in his life as he guides him in every way.

He added he would be forever grateful to him for his advice and guidance.
