Andre Gomes is said to have told Spanish football magazine Panenka he has had to endure “hell” at the Nou Camp because of the pressure upon him and the criticism of his recent performances. And according to the report by Diario Gol, Gerard Pique feels disappointed by the timing of Gomes' comments and does not want to play with him against the Blues.
