Former Barcelona player Pedro Rodriguez joined Chelsea in 2015. In his 5 years at the club, the Spanish international has won the Premier League title in 2017 under Antonio Conte and also won the FA Cup in 2018, as well as the Europa League a year later under Maurizio Sarri.
The 2019-20 Premier League season ended on Sunday with Chelsea finishing in the fourth position and hence guaranteeing a Champions League spot for the next season. It was Pedro’s last match at the Stamford Bridge. He bid farewell to Stamford Bridge.
My last game at Stamford Bridge. Thanks to every fan for your support through this years, to the club for giving me the chance of being a Blue and to my teammates. You'll be in my heart forever. Now let's fight for FA Cup trophy!!! BIG BLUE FAMILY 👏🏻💙🔝 @ChelseaFC #CFC #KTBFFH pic.twitter.com/vwFKmnWfbx— Pedro Rodríguez (@_Pedro17_) July 26, 2020
Pedro has already agreed on a deal with AS Roma. He will be joining the Italian club on free transfer.
The 32-year-old has made 137 appearances for the Blues netting 29 goals in all competitions. But this season he has made just 8 Premier League starts and 21 appearances in all competitions.
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard also thanked Pedro for his services to the club. He told Sky Sports: “Pedro has played his last game for the club. The lads have just pretty much serenaded him in the changing room and rightly so because of the career he has had generally and for this club.”
“It was his last Premier League game, but the impact he has had here is huge. I want to say a big thanks to Peds and wish him well as he goes forward. He is here for the remainder of games, but a big player of the club leaves and the spirit of the club I saw afterwards was pretty special.”
Pedro would definitely like to end his Chelsea career on a high note. He can add another silverware to his Chelsea career if he can win the FA Cup final against Arsenal on 1st August.
