Bio

Pedro Eliezer Rodríguez Ledesma, known by the simplified names Pedro and Pedrito, was born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain on 28 July 1987. A talented forward, who usually operates from either wing but is equally capable of playing centrally, he is known for his excellent movement, his ability to use either foot and his excellent finishing, from both long range and short range.

Having previously played youth football for San Isidro, Pedro joined the Barcelona youth academy in 2004 at the age of 17. After making his way through the ranks, he became a key player for Barcelona B, helping them to secure promotion to the Segunda División B at the end of the 2007-08 season. His performances caught the eye of the senior coaches and he made his debut for the senior team in January 2008; a short cameo appearance against Real Murcia.

Over the next few seasons, Pedro was slowly able to establish himself in the team, receiving a UEFA Champions League winners medal in 2008–09 and playing a role in the team winning a total of six competitions in the 2009 calendar year. He further established himself in the team over the next year, making 34 league appearances for the side in the 2009–10 season. During that campaign, he also made history by becoming the first player to score goals in six different official club competitions over the course of single season. In the years since, Pedro has become a regular goalscorer for the club, reaching double figures in all competitions in 2009–10, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14. The 2010-11 season brought with it his second Champions League win, while he has also contributed to numerous La Liga successes.

On the international stage, Pedro made his debut for Spain's senior team in 2010 and represented his country at both the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2012 UEFA European Championships, helping his side to win both competitions.
