Spanish winger Sergio Gomez played for Barcelona B from 2017 to 2018 before jumping to Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga.

Sergio Gomez played for the Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund youth system.

And the 19-year-old spoke before the UEFA Champions League match between his former clubs, as he is enjoying loan time with Huesca in the Spanish La Liga.

“I was a boy, I played with the older age groups and they called me “the little one.” I’m still known as that now: at Dortmund and Huesca!” he told Sport.

“At 17, to be able to start training with (Dortmund’s) first team was already great, but also the sporting project they presented to me was really good, so I made my decision. ”

He explained: “I think I chose well and I hope everything goes well at Huesca this year to return even stronger.”

“It’s a decision I and my family took. Nothing was missing. The club has always treated me well and I don’t have any complaints, but Dortmund came in for me, offered a great project and I made the decision.”

“You don’t know what will happen in the future, but this year I will play for Huesca and then I will return to Dortmund, where they’re treating me really well,” he commented.

“It’s a country where the game’s growing and they take chances on young players. Two teammates I had at Barça are now in Germany as well: Miranda at Schalke and Mateu in Dortmund, too.”

“I am really looking forward to this game. It’s been a long time since Barça have played there and lots of people haven’t seen them there. The stadium will be bouncing, the fans will be completely behind the team. They are in every game. They’re very loyal and it’s a tough place for Barça to go,” Gomez concluded.
