André Gomes appeared at a press conference on the day of his presentation as new player of FC Barcelona. Gomes is looking forward to enjoying this new challenge. These are his main statements:
"I'm very happy to be here in Barcelona, this great city, and I hope we win many titles together."
"I hope I will get many titles and be here with you [the fans] for a long time."
"I want to thank the Board for trusting me, my family. It is an honor to wear that shirt."
"I had to choose and I chose what I think is the best club. I don't think I made the wrong decision."
"My objectives? Very simple, winning titles, winning all competitions we take part him."
"Yes there are many players in midfield, all great. I have time to become a man and a better player. I want to improve."
"I will do the maximum to play like the coach wants me to play. He is the one who decides."
Why not Madrid?
"Each club has their own personality. The club that is closest to my personality is Barça."
"I talked to the coach over the phone. He told me how he works and that he was looking forward to starting."
Cristiano or Messi?
"It is an honor for me to play with Messi and Cristiano. They both have their own style."
"My number? We haven't talked about it yet. But the one who plays is the player, not the number."
"Ballon d'Or? I don't think about it. We will see what happens in the future. For now, I'm enjoying."
"I can't be obsessed with the Ballon d'Or. Everyone loves seeing Iniesta play, and yet he has never won it."
