Spain international winger Pedro Rodriguez has revealed his plan for next season as he claimed he won’t be moving out of Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Pedro, who joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2015, failed to tie down a permanent spot in Antonio Conte’s starting eleven throughout last season.
Despite Pedro’s excellent performance in the 2016-17 season where he helped the Italian manager to his first Premier League glory, he wasn’t given the luxury of regular playing-time by Conte.
As results of his inability to get regular time on the field of play, the speedy and skilful winger is being linked out of West London by British media.
However, the player has publicly debunked the rumors that suggest he is sad with the turn of events at Stamford Bridge.
According to him while speaking with Spanish media outlet Cadena Ser, he is happy playing for a Chelsea and he’s ready to stay and fight for a place in the Manager’s lineup in the upcoming season.
He further reaffirmed his desire to see-out his contract with the club irrespective of the intense competition for a place in the Conte’s lineup.
“Obviously I have a contract at Chelsea and most likely I will stay. I’m good here.” he concluded.
His lack of first-team action for the Blues during the previous season was solely responsible for his omission from Spain’s World Cup squad.
The Spanish side will begin their World Cup campaign on the 19th of June against Egypt. The La Rojas would be hoping to lift the trophy for the second time in three editions of the tournament.
