Barcelona right back Dani Alves believes that his former Barca teammate Pedro Rodriguez should have stayed at the Camp Nou rather than join Chelsea in the Premier league.
The Spaniard ended ten years with the Catalan club when he moved to Stamford Bridge for around £22million in the summer.
He had been struggling at the Nou Camp for a regular place in the team with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all ahead of him.
And last week he revealed he was happy with his decision to leave.
He said: “When someone gets to play, they gain rhythm, confidence, you’re happier, you try out more things.
“Leaving Barca was tough for me but I’m happy with the change.”
However, right-back Alves is adamant the 28-year-old should have remained at the club.
He said: “I told Pedro he should have stayed at the team but too many people got involved.
“Had he stayed he would have been happy here but we don’t make the decisions. If we did I would want him to stay for years.”
