Silva is now on-loan at Sevilla.
“Andre Silva also arrived during a difficult time for the club. When you are a young player from overseas who doesn't know the environment very well, and are seen as some saviour for the fans, usually things don't go very well," Gomes told Tuttosport.
“He is not a typical Pippo Inzaghi style Number 9, but rather a striker who moves around a lot, tries to pass it around and often provides assists for others.
“He's not the kind of player who just finishes in the box and that's it."
