Paco Alcacer has assured Barcelona that “the goals will come” as “I’m consoled a bit by the fact David Villa and Luis Suarez struggled at first.”
Alcacer has yet to open his account for Barca since arriving for €30m from Valencia in August, but the striker insists his predecessors also found it difficult when they started out at Camp Nou and that he will not stop scoring once he breaks his duck.
“I feel very good. It’s hard at first when you join such a big club with unique players, it’s normal, but thanks to them they’ve made it all the more easier, in terms of training, adaptation,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“I’m consoled a bit by the fact Villa and Luis Suarez struggled at first.
“They are all magnificent lads and they all help to the maximum. I personally thank everyone.
“Saying ‘no’ to Barcelona is very difficult. Barcelona are the best club I can be at right now.
“There are players on this team will make anyone coming in a better player. The basis of my reasons for coming here is that it’s an exciting project, and for me to sign for Barcelona is a big step in my career. I think I’ve done well to come here.
“It’s clear that strikers are judged on goals, but if I’m here then it’s because they’ve [Barca] seen something in me, and in the end they will come like last year, when it also took me a while to get going.
“Strikers have spurts as when the first goal goes in, they all do.”
