Chelsea hero Pedro speaks out after scoring first goal for his new club


Chelsea forward Pedro was clearly delighted after enjoying a dream debut for the Blues on Sunday afternoon.

The Spain international scored the first goal of the game against West Bromwich Albion in what was a hard-fought win for Jose Mourinho's men.

Minutes later he turned provider for striker Diego Costa as a clear indication that it didn't take him long to settle down at his new club.

"I enjoyed my debut with this team a lot," Pedro told the club's official website.

"It was important for me [to score] for my adaption in the team and I’m really very happy for the victory."

Meanwhile, Barcelona published a farewell letter from the 28-year-old on their club's official website.

"Playing in this Club was a dream of mine from very young," Pedro said in his letter.

"I have always felt comfortable here, I have tried to learn from all the examples and legends who have passed through Barça.

"That has helped to guide me as a person and learn the institution's values. I think and I hope that I have done the best I can.

"Now I am sad to be leaving my home but happy to have given everything."
