This winger, born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, joined the Barça youth structure in August 2004 to play for the Juvenil A side after previously representing CD San Isidro.
After three years in the reserve teams, Pedro got his first taste of the first team during the 2007/08 season. Both these games were at the Camp Nou, against Murcia in game 19 and Valladolid in game 29. But he still spent most of the season with Barça B, helping them to promotion to Division 2B. He scored six goals in 36 outings.
Guardiola, now manager of the first team, kept a close eye on his former charge. In fact, Pedro was one of the players he made the most use of in the 2008/09 preseason. As the season progressed, Pedro started playing a role in all three competitions, and even enjoyed some pitch time in the Copa del Rey and Champions League finals. In total, he appeared in 14 games in the 2008/09 season, but didn't score any goals until the 2009-10 Supercup match at such a historic location as San Mamés.
On August 20, 2009 Pedro signed a contract as a first team player after being one of the highest scorers in the preseason matches. In 2009, Pedro Rodríguez scored in the Spanish League, Copa del Rey, Champions League , both the European and Spanish Super Cups and the World Club Cup – the first player in the world to achieve this. Without a doubt the grand revelation of the 2009-10 season. He scored 10 goals in the league of the 99 points.
In 2010/11 he stayed as strong, making 53 appearances, one more than 2009/10, and scored 22 goals, one fewer than the previous year, one of which was the opener at Wembley. In the 2010/11 season he scored in six consecutive games, something only Escolà, Quini and Stoichkov had done before him.
In the 2011/12 season, Pedro Rodríguez scored 13 goals in 48 games, not quite as good a tally as in previous seasons but some of those were crucial goals, such as his brace in the Copa del Rey final on May 25. As well as that title, he also won the Spanish Supercup, European Supercup and the Clubs World Cup.
His extraordinary performances at club level took him to the Spanish squad for the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa. He made the starting line-up in the semi-final and final and became a key figure in Spain's eventual victory.
