Barcelona Midfielder Andre Gomes Gives A Heartbreaking Interview About His Current Situation

These comments surely signify the end of Gomes' time at the Nou Camp and the flawless opportunity for Spurs to make a move if they want the midfielder to be their player for the start of next season.

The midfielder has made 13 appearances for Barcelona in La Liga this season, scoring no goals and creating just two key chances. "The first six months at Barcelona were positive, then things changed and for me, it was like hell because I felt more pressure and because of that, I couldn't make the most of my potential".

"Maybe it's not the right word to use, but it has turned into a bit of a hell, because I have started to feel more pressure".

"I shut myself away", he said in an interview with Spanish football magazine Panenka.

"It's as if I feel ashamed". Obviously, there are days that I feel a little low on confidence and in training it can be noticeable.

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

The notion of not wanting to leave the house has happened to me on more than one occasion. Then I don't talk to anybody, I don't bother anyone.

"The idea of people being able to see you, it gives off a fear of going out into the street because of embarrassment", said Gomes. I can not shake negative moments out of my head and it impacts on my performances and I am thinking too much. "Although my team mates support me a lot, things don't go for me how they want them to go".

Should the captain remain sidelined, Gomes could play in his stead on Wednesday in the Champions League last 16 second leg against Chelsea.

Gomes is now being linked with a summer move elsewhere, with Manchester United and AC Milan among those reported to be keen.
