Talking about talented young midfielders at the present time, Yves Bissouma especially appreciated Pedri – the owner of both the Kopa Trophy and Golden Boy awards. According to Bissouma, the Spanish talent possesses similarities to Andres Iniesta and has the ability to become one of the best midfielders in the world.
The Tottenham Hotspur star shared:
“Pedri makes me think of Iniesta. When we played Barcelona in a friendly match, I went up to Pedri after the match and told him: ‘Give me your shirt, because You will become one of the best midfielders in the world.”
“They have De Jong, and all the players in the midfield are quality. When they had the ball, I knew I wanted to win it, but with Pedri, he kept turning left and right. It was pre-season, and I don’t think he played to 100% of his ability.”
Besides, Bissouma also praised Andres Iniesta, affirming that Iniesta is one of the three best midfielders of all time, along with Yaya Toure and Zinedine Zidane.
