Chelsea winger Pedro has made an impact at Stamford Bridge since joining from Barcelona during the summer window.
According to the Daily Express, the Spanish international defended his transfer decision despite Barcelona’s troubled relationshio with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
“The past is there and there are people who will not forgive what happened (between Mourinho and Barcelona), but athletes have a different way of valuing things,” Pedro said.
“The truth is that one has an image of him that when you know him, changes a lot. It’s not what it seems.”
Mourinho has been despised by the Barcelona faithful since he poked the eye of former manager Tito Vilanova, who passed away in 2014.
Pedro maintains that he likes having Mourinho as his manager and that he is not how he is perceived.
The former Barcelona star came storming out of the gate with a goal in his first game with the Blues.
His playing time decreased with Barcelona, as he pushed down the pecking order at the Camp Nou following the arrival of Luis Suarez.
The Blues’ attack is expected to continue to improve with the addition of Pedro and the controversial yet successful managing style of Mourinho.
Chelsea are still looking to overcome a slow start though, as they most recently suffered a loss to Crystal Palace.
