With André Gomes having already signed his new contract with FC Barcelona, thus becoming the fourth signing of the off season, it was the player's father who became a protagonist in one of the most emotional moments ever seen during the presentation of a new player.
With Gomes's family — his father, Casemiro Gomes; his mother, Maria Julieta; his brother, Nuno; and his girlfriend, Lisa — with him throughout the morning, the midfielder took the new team shirt that had just been given to him by Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu, and he handed it over to his father.
In the privacy of the team dressing room, André Gomes's signed the shirt and gifted it to his dad — a life-long FC Barcelona fan — setting off a long and tender father–son embrace, a highly emotional moment in the very room where Gomes will be suiting up for the next five seasons.
