Barcelona midfielder Pedri was awarded the Kopa Trophy 2021, which was awarded to the under-21s in the men’s ball at the Ballon d’Or on Monday.
The 19-year-old Spanish midfielder made his debut last season with the way he played against Blaugrana, but also in Spain at the 2020 European Championship last summer.
Pedri received more votes than the likes of Mason Greenwood, Bukayo Saka, Jeremy Doku, Ryan Gravenberch, Jamal Musiala, Florian Wirtz, Jude Bellingham, Giovanni Reyna, and Nuno Mendes.
“I want to thank Barcelona, the national team, my teammates, and give a tribute to my long-suffering family,” said a sad Pedri.
“Special talk on the island of La Palma facing a difficult time.”
