Former Spanish fullback Jose Enrique says Barcelona midfielder Pedri is ready for a big World Cup.

Enrique insists Pedri can become the big star in Qatar.

“To me, the player that has more projection in terms of image on that team is Pedri, he won't be out of the team," said José Enrique to Stats Perform.

“You also have Ferran Torres doing well for Barcelona and Pau [Torres], the central defender of Villarreal; I think he will be key for the team as well.

“But to choose one who will make the difference 100 per cent, and that already did in the past, it is Pedri.

“For me, he is the star of the national team, the Iniesta, the Xavi. Back in that day it was different because there were many and that is why Spain won everything. But if you mention Spain now, the first player that comes to my mind is Pedri."
