Midfielder Andre Gomes joined the Blaugrana from Valencia for €35 million (R555 million) last season, but has failed to live up to expectations.

The Portugal star, who has played only 104 minutes in five appearances under new coach Ernesto Valverde so far in this campaign, has now addressed his struggles at the club.

"Playing at Barcelona is not for everyone," Gomes told A Bola, as cited by Spanish publication Sport.

"In the past, I had moments which were really tough for me to go through."

The 24-year-old, who was part of Portugal's 2016 UEFA European Championship-winning side, was linked with a move to the Premier League in the latest transfer window, and he has admitted he could have left Barcelona.

"I had options to leave Barca, but nothing serious," he added.

3 goals we can live with as a midfielder but 3 assist in 52 games then the whole team is in trouble. Frankly! Gomez is an average player not barca material watsoever.

Maybe he is just not suited for barca, a move could perhaps do him great
