The FC Barcelona midfielder Pedri fell out of the first list of the new Spanish coach Luis de la Fuente, offered shortly before this Friday, still recovering from an injury from a month ago that will prevent him from being in the Classic this Sunday.
“The national coach, Luis de la Fuente, has called off Pedri for the next two matches of the Spanish National Team after the conversations held between the medical services of the Royal Spanish Football Federation and FC Barcelona,” the RFEF announced in a statement. in the afternoon.
De la Fuente had included the canary in his first list for the matches against Norway, at La Rosaleda Stadium next Saturday, March 25, and against Scotland, at home on Tuesday 28, with which Spain will begin the qualifying phase for the Eurocopa of Germany of 2024.
However, Pedri is not ready to play again, injured since February 16 against Manchester United, so he will not reach the Clásico against Real Madrid this Sunday at the Spotify Camp Nou. “In the next few hours, the possibility of summoning another player in his place will be assessed,” added the Federation.
