"Since I became a professional footballer, my reference is Iniesta"
André Gomes, Barça's new signing, gave an interview to TV3 in which he talked about his arrival in the Blaugrana club. Gomes confesses that he talked to Cristiano after he signed and that his Portuguese teammate congratulated him.
Here are his main statements:
Conversation with Cristiano
"I talked to him, he congratualted me and the truth is I was happy, but now I am still Cristiano's opponent, I have been before."
"On the pitch there is no friendship. I have time in the national team to be with him. Right now what I want the most is to enjoy being alongside Messi."
"With the style of play Barça has, you learn every day, even though sometimes you're not in the starting eleven, and that is what I'm looking for."
"Since I became a professional footballer, my reference is Iniesta, in every way. I will like learning from how he plays and enjoying it."
