For some other striker it wouldn’t have been that long, but five games without scoring is anything like Luis Suarez, who returned to being his… normal self against Leganes, scoring twice, and being very important in Barcelona’s 3-0 win.
I wasn’t anxious. The important thing was to feel good again and help the team win. And the goals have served to help the team win the game today
the Uruguayan told beIN Sports after the match, in a mood to downplay his own achievement, the two goals.
Each game has its difficulties. We knew how the game was going to go; the important thing was to win. We try to play well, but it’s not always possible. We have to get used to that
Suarez said, stating the self-evident, that Barcelona are not playing against… no one, the competition sometimes is strong enough to make things hard for them.
As for Ernesto Valverde, the Blaugrana coach, he admitted that the final 3-0 was harsh for Leganes, heavier than what the humble hosts deserved.
The scoreline possibly says we dominated more than we did. Three goals was excessive but that’s football. We had a high level of success in front of goal and they didn’t. They had their chances. It was a tough game. There were moments when we struggled to play
the Barcelona boss said.
