Former Barcelona striker David Villa has likened the situation faced by Pedro in the last few months to the situation that forced his exit from the club to Atletico Madrid a few years ago.
Villa spent three years at the Camp Nou and was part of the Barcelona team that is still regarded as the best in the history of the game. The 2011 team managed to win a whole host of titles including the Champions League. Villa scored in the final of the 2011 Champions League, but he did not stay at the club for much longer. Changes in the tactics meant that he was on the bench more often than not.
