Villa left Barcelona for Atletico Madrid this summer after having spent three years at Camp Nou.
“Villa is a dear person to me,” Pedro said.
“I’ve shared many moments with him. I miss him personally and on the pitch. I have the good fortune of meeting him with the national team and I enjoy that. I’m very glad things are going well for him at Atletico.
“He is a reference point for Spanish football. I would have liked him to stay, but these things happen. I wish him well.”
