Behind the scenes with Pedro

Pedro provides some behind-the-scenes information on his team-mates in the latest instalment of this feature. The winger reveals the outfielder he reckons would do a decent job in goal, explains why one player in particular sets a good example, and also answers a question from the last player to take part in this questionnaire, Willy Caballero.

- Who has been the best player in training lately?

That’s a difficult one because all the players here train at a very good level and have a good mentality to improve. Maybe Marcos Alonso, N’Golo, Azpi and Cesc have been the best.

- Of the outfield players, who would also make a good goalkeeper?

Maybe Gary Cahill because he is strong and very tall and he is good in the box.

- Of the defenders, who would make the best striker?

David Luiz has very good quality on the ball so maybe him. Rudi would be good for scoring headers.

- Who do you sit with on away trips? What do you do to pass the time?

Normally I have my iPad and listen to music or play Parcheesi with Cesc, Marcos and Willy. During the flight I start thinking about the game.

- Who is good at lifting morale after a bad result?

You always have a bad feeling when you lose, but it’s important to stay positive with your team-mates and look forward to the next game. Azpi or Cahill, the captains, they normally speak, or David Luiz and Cesc, the players with the most experience in this situation.

- Who is the biggest joker in the dressing room?

Rudi, Marcos, David Luiz, one of them! All the players make a very good atmosphere in the dressing room.

- Who is the quietest?

N’Golo is very shy!

- Who is the loudest?

David Luiz or Olivier.

- Who is good at free-kicks in training that we might not know about?

Ross is very good from long distance and shoots very well.

- Who is the most active on Instagram?

I think Alvaro Morata for sure!

- If you could book any music act to play at Under the Bridge [the venue at Stamford Bridge], who would it be and which players would you try to convince to come with you?

I would take one of the Spanish guys to watch. The music isn’t important, what is important is the company!

- Which player should the fans follow on social media?

N’Golo. He is a very good person, he is modest, he is a good example for the kids and other players. In five years he has had a lot of success and won many titles, personal ones and team ones.

- Who do you eat lunch with at Cobham?

Normally the Spanish players, Zappacosta too. Sometimes I can be with Gary, Ross and Danny. The relation here is very good with all the players so it is easy to have lunch with anyone.

- And the question from Willy Caballero. Who is the best at Parcheesi?

Maybe Caballero! The worst are Marcos and Cesc. They always lose!
