• Midfielder has admitted he is struggling with pressure at the club
• Sergio Busquets says Barça squad will support their team-mate
Ernesto Valverde is considering including André Gomes against Chelsea despite the midfielder publicly admitting that he is not enjoying playing football and is struggling with the pressure at the club.
The Barcelona manager described Gomes as “brave” for speaking out, and the midfielder Sergio Busquets said the squad would help their team-mate after Gomes gave an interview to Panenka magazine in which he described his “hell” at Barcelona. “Andre has lots of qualities; let’s see if tomorrow is the day that he shows that,” Valverde said.
