André Gomes has a point to his favour. Or two. The first, his youth, that allows him have still a wide margin of improvement. And the second: it is not easy to surrender in a club like the Barça from the first day
The Barça decided to bet the past summer by André Gomes, one of the Portuguese midfield players with more projection. And the first season of the luso in the Camp Nou has been very irregular.
Gomes Has not fit in the Barcelona system. And this that opportunities has had. Luis Enrique trusted he and until the last party did him want to see cuán important was for his ideas.
But the fans of the Barça have not seen in the luso a player that have future. His apathy in the lawn, his slowness in the taking of decisions, the feeling to be always tired… Did time that the Camp Nou did not whistle to a player in his first season.
The first year never is easy
However, André Gomes has a point to his favour. Or two. The first, his youth, that allows him have still a wide margin of improvement. And the second: it is not easy to surrender in a club like the Barça from the first day.
As a result of this subject, the Barcelona sportive director Robert Fernándezcommented several occasions that "Laudrup and Koeman did not live a good first year in the club. It cost them a lot adapt to this style and neither had a lot of acceptance of the fans". Patience, this is what seems to ask the club to his fans.
We will see what decides Ernesto Valverde. The player, by his part, has it clear, wants to follow. "It cost me a bit at the beginning, since have an own style and demands some time adapt, but gave me time and freedom to grow, are few the clubs that do it", explained in an interview in Portugal.
