Winning the FA Cup will be the perfect Chelsea goodbye for Pedro
After nearly five years with Chelsea, Pedro's time in London is about to come to an end. Earlier this week, Frank Lampard confirmed the Spanish winger will be leaving at the end of the campaign. His next move will be to join Roma.
With the English Premier League season wrapping up over the weekend, that means Pedro only has a few more opportunities to put on the Chelsea jersey, including the FA Cup Final against Arsenal on August 1 at Wembley.
So, with Pedro getting ready to say goodbye to the fans, what better way to send him off than by having him lift one last trophy with the club?
My last game at Stamford Bridge. Thanks to every fan for your support through this years, to the club for giving me the chance of being a Blue and to my teammates. You'll be in my heart forever. Now let's fight for FA Cup trophy!!! BIG BLUE FAMILY 👏🏻💙🔝 @ChelseaFC #CFC #KTBFFH pic.twitter.com/vwFKmnWfbx— Pedro Rodríguez (@_Pedro17_) July 26, 2020
In total, Pedro made more than 200 appearances for the club and helped the Blues win the Premier League title, an FA Cup and the Europa League.
He became a fan favorite because of his great pace down the pitch, and also his strong passing abilities which would often help strikers find the back of the net. With his days with the team numbered, how great would it be see him win one more title in blue?
That's the opportunity he has, with Chelsea set to take on Arsenal this weekend with the FA Cup championship on the line. In the semifinals, the Gunners upset Manchester City 2-0, while Chelsea dominated Manchester United 3-1.
Come Sunday, all eyes will be on Chelsea to see if they can win this all-London final. And should they get the job done, you'll understand if Pedro is emotional after helping the team lift the silverware into the sky. It'll be a great way to cap his outstanding career with Chelsea.
