"I look forward to working with Jorge Jesus. We all, Brazilians, know the great work he did [at Flamengo]. Great players have evolved a lot with him, and I want that too, to be able to work with him and evolve. I'm sure it'll work out fine because he's a great coach at a great team ", claimed the new player of the eagles.
Pedrinho followed the launch of the new jersey. "It's very pretty. My dad always told me he couldn't wait for me to put it on. I hope I make a great story wearing this jersey. I want to achieve many titles because we know that a club is only valued when it wins games. I'm ambitious, I have big dreams and I want to win as many titles as possible at Benfica. I'm sure the fans want that too", enfatizou o brasileiro.
