Cole and more: Twitter reacts after Pedro scores on Chelsea debut
Andy Cole and Jermaine Jenas react after Pedro Rodriguez breaks the deadlock for Chelsea on his Premier League debut
Pedro Rodriguez broke the deadlock for Chelsea on his Premier League debut after he completed a move to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona on Thursday.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho opted to start his £21.1m signing for the trip to West Bromwich Albion, and the 27-year-old broke the deadlock in the 20th minute with a deflected strike past Boaz Myhil.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to the Chelsea forward’s first goal.
Football journalist Henry Winter is particularly impressed with Pedro’s first-half efforts:
Pedro…scored one, made one. Not a bad #cfc debut so far. A team player with assists & goals. Early days but already looks embedded in team

Former Swansea forward Lee Trundle jokes that Pedro won’t take to the Premier League:
Think pedro is gonna need a few games to settle in 🙈🙈🙈 x

Meanwhile, ex-Newcastle United midfielder Jermaine Jenas jokes that Manchester United supporters won’t be happy:
Man United fan have gotta be fuming watching this from pedro! 🙈

And, unsurprisingly United legend Andrew Cole isn’t happy to see Pedro opening his Chelsea account:
Pedro scored 1 and set one up 😳 #cfc

Finally, former Bolton Wanderers Kevin Davies reckons Louis van Gaal missed a trick:
Pedro looks like a very good signing, I watched a team yesterday that could have done with him!!
