Denis Suarez joy at first Barca goal

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has expressed delight at his first goal for the club and believes it will give him the platform to push on.

The 23-year-old returned to the Camp Nou this summer from Villarreal and slotted home the opener from the edge of the area in Barca’s 4-0 win at Eibar on Sunday after Lionel Messi’s shot had been initially blocked.

"I'm super happy with my first goal for Barca because I had been waiting a long time," Suarez told reporters after the game.

"It will give me confidence. I hope I can score more goals now and get more minutes."

The former Manchester City player has started only seven league games under Luis Enrique this term and featured in just one Champion’s League fixture this season.

The midfielder also took to instagram to post: "A perfect win and a goal that I will never forget!"
