Barcelona are a bit light when it comes to playmaking midfielders with Pedri injured, which would hand youngster Pablo Torre more game time
Barcelona starlet and Golden Boy winner Pedri will be out for a month which has left Barca short in midfield. This will seemingly allow Pablo Torre to play more as Barcelona boss Xavi has hinted.
“That’s the Premier League”
Pedri pulled out of Barcelona’s clash against Manchester United in the Europa League last-16 play-off. It has now been revealed that the 20-year-old will be out for at least a month.
With seven games for Blaugrana in the upcoming month, Xavi needs some new blood, especially in midfield. This could see more opportunity handed to the Barcelona youngster Pablo Torre.
Torre has already featured for Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. Barca boss Xavi talked about Torre and the differences he has with Pedri.
“They are very different, Pablo is more attacking, and not so interior. He has more ability to make a difference near the box.” Xavi said.
“The team will need him at any time. He doesn’t have it easy, but if Pablo Torre played, you would ask me why someone else doesn’t play.”
Pabo Torre is in Barcelona’s squad for their match against Cadiz.
