Pedro has apologised for his earlier outburst over lack of playing time at the Euro 2016. After stating he was considering leaving France.
The former Barcelona forward had a cameo appearance in the 1-0 win over Czech Republic. But was unused in the 3-0 thumping of Turkey, with Silva and Nolito preferred on the wings by Del Bosque.
The Spain international said he had other expectations when called up for international duty. Expressing a desire to leave, if he remains unused.
However, at a later press conference, he played a different tune for the media.
“I apologise if I offended someone with my comments. I am delighted to be here with Spain. It is a dream to be at the Euros,” Pedro said.
“I have clarified things with my team-mates and they understood what I meant. I have spoken with Del Bosque and with my team-mates. They all understand me. I am very grateful to have their confidence.
“It is clear that I would like to play more, just like everyone would like to play.
“But I can only repeat that I am delighted to be here. I have explained everything to the coach and to the rest of the team. I apologise if I caused problems.”
The 28-year-old was expected to get the chance to prove his worth in Spain’s final Group D game against Croatia as they have already booked their ticket for the knockout stages, but his outburst could very well cost him a place in the starting XI on Tuesday.
