Because of Coronavirus Pandemic, Pedro ignores his future at Chelsea
Pedro Rodriguez’s future at Chelsea is still a puzzle, but he himself doesn’t think about it. For him, the most important thing now is the Corona Virus outbreak which is expected to disappear soon.
Pedro Rodriguez, who joined Chelsea in the summer of 2015, currently has a remaining contract until the end of the 2019/20 season. This means that he can leave Stamford Bridge on a free transfer this summer.
Because the new contract agreement has not yet been reached between the Blues and the former Barcelona star until now. As a result, this situation sparked speculation about the future of the 32-year-old figure.
Many European clubs began to be associated with Pedro, but the player himself did not think about it.
“My contract will expire soon but this time it is not the most important thing. I do not stop thinking about this, “Pedro told Cadena SER.
What Pedro meant was the Coronavirus Outbreak or COVID-19 which continued to threaten human life in various countries, including in England and in his hometown, Spain. Pedro also admitted that he is currently undergoing quarantine like other players.
The most important thing is that all people show solidarity. Whatever happens in my future will happen but now it’s not important because we don’t even know when we can get back to training,”
“We are undergoing quarantine because one of our players is positively infected by the Coronavirus, he is now in good condition and we are very happy for him,” he added.
Meanwhile, the player referred to by Pedro is none other than Callum Hudson-Odoi. The young Chelsea striker has indeed been positively infected by the Coronavirus, and it was only revealed a few hours after Arsenal’s coach, Mikel Arteta was announced to have contracted the plague.
The English Premier League is currently officially postponed, counted since the finding of two positive Corona cases at Mikel Arteta and Callum Hudson-Odoi. If there are no obstacles, the new competition will be rolled out again on 30 April 2020.
But there is no guarantee that the situation will subside, so delays can be extended.
