Portuguese International Andres Gomes has opened up on his stay at the FC Barcelona where he accepted that he has been struggling to settle at the Catalan club.
Gomes disclosed that “the first six months were pretty good, but then things changed. Maybe the word is not the most correct but it became a bit hell, because I started to have more pressure. With the pressure I live well, with what I do not live well is with pressure for myself “.
André Gomes in an exclusive interview with Panenka magazine made these revelations.
“[About Barcelona] The first six months were pretty good, but then things changed. Maybe the word is not the most correct but it became a bit of hell, because I started to have more pressure “.
“I live well with the pressure, I do not live well with the pressure for myself”.
“I am very calm in training. Obviously there are some days when I am a little bad of confidence, because it even shows in the workouts. You know that you have suffered. Maybe I played the day before or two days before and I’m still with the image of the game, which does not allow me to move forward. But in training I feel comfortable with my teammates, the feeling I have in matches is bad”.
“Thinking too much hurts me. Because I think about the bad things and, later, what I have to do, and I’m always in tow. Although my colleagues support me a lot, things do not work out the way they want them to go”.
“I’m locked up. I do not allow myself to get rid of the frustration I have. So, what I do is not talk to anyone, not bother anyone. It’s like I feel embarrassed “.
“It has happened to me on more than one occasion that I do not want to leave the house. That of people watching you, being afraid to go out in shame … ”
“[Talking about his friends] They tell me I’m going with the hand brake. And what more it costs is to have conscience of everything “.
“[About the expectations others have] It bothers me that they tell me that I can do many good things. I ask myself: and why do not I do them? “
