Euro 2016: Chelsea winger Pedro slams limited Spain role, claiming it is ‘not worth’ his time

Spain winger Pedro claims being asked to sit on the bench at Euro 2016 is ‘not worth’ his time.

The 28-year-old has played less than 10 minutes so far in the tournament, coming on during the late stages of La Roja’s 1-0 win over the Czech Republic.

Coach Vicente Del Bosque has showed a preference for the likes of Nolito and David Silva on the flanks – something which has upset the Chelsea forward.

“I had different expectations when I first came here,” he said in an interview with Movistar, quoted in Marca.

“It is difficult for me to play this role (as a substitute), and if there is no continuity it is not worth me turning up just to be part of the group.”

The Chelsea forward, who joined the Blues from Barcelona last summer, is one of the most experienced players in the Spain squad, having won 58 caps and scored 17 goals since making his debut in May 2010.
