Barcelona star Pedro has slammed the club’s technical secretary Robert Fernandez as Manchester United close in on a £22m deal for the winger.
Before Barcelona’s UEFA Super Cup win over Sevilla, Fernandez claimed that Pedro had effectively handed in a transfer request.
Pedro was brought off the bench in extra time and scored the winner in a pulsating 5-4 win over its La Liga counterparts.
Ahead of Spanish international’s expected move to Manchester United, Pedro claimed that he was unhappy with Fernandez’s comments, labelling them “unfair”.
“There are many pros and cons about my situation,” Pedro is quoted as saying by Daily Star.
The comments of Robert Fernandez are unfair. He’s made some very unfortunate declarations.
“I’ve crossed two words with him and he doesn’t know what I’ve been through at the club to talk like that of me.
“I know who I am and I will always be of Barca. Such people shouldn’t speak in this way.”
Fernandez told TV3 that Pedro told him he wanted to leave the club, before stating the Catalan giants would not sell the 28-year-old for any less than £21.2m.
Pedro is believed to frustrated by his lack of first-team opportunities at the Camp Nou, with the front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez keeping the winger out of the starting XI.
