Gomes ‘potential humongous’ – Lucho

Barcelona Coach Luis Enrique admitted Andre Gomes has only played at 30 percent capacity this season but spoke of his ‘humongous potential’.

"Beyond the two goals – the first of which is a very difficult finish – Andre has humongous potential," Luis Enrique, who has defended Gomes several times this year, said in his postgame news conference.

"I can and will say that 1000 times over, even if he is criticised a lot. He can play in different positions … he's only using 30 percent of his capacity. Imagine him at 100 percent.

"He needs to improve emotionally but he's at the best possible club to do that. He's very demanding, very responsible and he has quality.

"Beating Osasuna 7-1? I think it was a complete performance. After [Osasuna] got back to 2-1 we were able to put the foot on the accelerator and close the game out.

"That was the worst moment because when they get the goal back they're back in the game and you never know will happen. But, with the way we played, we deserved to win by a wide margin."
