Speaking prior to the Olympics, Koeman said: "Pedri had a phenomenal Euros. At only 18 years of age, he played almost all of the games in full with an impressive maturity.

"He is improving and he is a humble and relaxed boy. He lives for football. He is an example of how you have to be as a youngster at Barca.

"It's a shame for us, we have the maximum confidence, he is not worried and this season there is a great expectation of him.

"It's is important for our football base, that the youngsters see that they are at a club that gives them opportunities.

"Pedri has played a lot. We should give him as much rest as he needs during the summer.

"As Guardiola said, to play two important tournaments in the summer is too much, but we can't do anything about it."
