Prem clubs on alert as midfielder describes Barca as 'hell'

Prem clubs on alert as midfielder describes Barca as 'hell'

When FC Barcelona paid 35 million euros to Valencia for their Portuguese midfielder, Andre Gomes in the summer of 2016, it seemed as if Gomes would make the step up to the very highest level and fulfil the potential he had shown at his former club. He has a lot of qualities and we will get a chance to see them tomorrow. "I feel comfortable with my teammates", he continued.

"I am not enjoying what I am doing".

'Maybe it's not the correct word but it turned into a bit of a hell, because I started to feel more pressure. With pressure I feel fine, but with pressure on myself, I don't. "I now have a bad feeling during games", admitted the midfielder.

"On more than one occasion, I didn't want to leave my house". Because people look at you, having the fear of going on the street out of shame.

"I don't allow myself to let out the frustration that I have".

"If I think he is ready to play then he is", added Valverde. I can not shake negative moments out of my head and it impacts on my performances and I am thinking too much.

My friends tell me I am going with the handbrake on.


"In training, I'm relaxed".

Barcelona take on Chelsea at the Camp Nou in the second leg of their Round of 16 Champions League tie on Wednesday, with the match poised at 1-1. Asked if Gomes was ready to play, Valverde replied: "If the coach believes so, yes".

Gomes said the loss of confidence also affected his training sessions.

"Players and coaches are [generally] careful not to show any insecurity or weakness and André has done so, which is fearless, but it is not new and he is not the only one - it has happened to us all in one way or another and we have to find ways of confronting that and carrying on", Valverde added.

Busquets said: "We knew something of André's situation but it's a very personal thing. We've tried to help him out but he's the one who has to bring his problems home", Busquets said.

"To be successful you need a combination of everything, but I am not saying that he is not ready". "If we want to achieve important things we have to do it together".
