Pedro: "We can bounce back against Sevilla"


Pedro Rodríguez was stunned with the warm reception that he received when he went on as a substitute for FC Barcelona in the 0-5 win against his boyhood side Tenerife on Sunday evening.

The Canary Islander grew up watching the local side and was warmly applauded as he entered the fray with the Blaugrana firmly in control. "It made a great impression on me," he said. "I was not expecting that. I want to thank everyone because they have treated me very well."

With Barça leading by four goals Pedro broke into the area and Luna's attempted tackle on him saw the hapless defender divert the ball past his own keeper to complete what looked like an unlikely outcome in the opening half an hour. "They came out well, but we took advantage of our chances," he continued. "It was a good win for us because it has given us confidence. Now we think we can bounce back in the cup against Sevilla."

Below are what a couple of the other Barça stars had to say after the win:


"It was a very good result. We were slightly disconcerted at the start, but little-by-little we came back into the game."

"To score three goals in such a tough first half was important and we were able to play more confidently after the break."

"I feel good. It is important for me to play 90 minutes. I am always available for the coach."
