The Blues left Japan in great spirits after they’ve clinched an impressive victory over their well-known rivals.
Barcelona were a worthy foe despite that being their first exhibition match of the 2019 summer pre-season, but the Catalans still came up short in a 2-1 defeat.
It was a nice way for Chelsea to round off their trips abroad before they get back to England where the preparations will reach their final fortnight. The teams are now slowly gearing up for the new Premier League season in August.
Pedro Rodriguez played against his old team but emotions and nostalgia aside, the Spaniard knows this game will give the team the morale boost they need for the upcoming challenges.
Still, he posted an Instagram snap of his reunion with Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
He captioned it as “Special and emotional moments with good friends”, and it was exactly that.
Pedro spent the majority of his career at Barcelona and moved to Chelsea in 2015. He’s been donning the blue ever since.
