Valverde Hails Masterclass Iniesta

share on:

Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde was full of praise for Andreas Iniesta, after his performance against Alaves.

The Catalans were close to a first league loss, after a Guidetti strike in the first half looked set on being the only goal.

However, some trickery from Iniesta and a pass to Suarez got the equaliser. And Messi scored the winner from a free kick.

“The truth is that we have good players who play in the interior role, but Iniesta is a master at that,” said Barca’s coach after guiding his side to a record-equalling 21-game unbeaten start to the top-flight campaign.

“I thought he could help us from there. It was important not to get too many of us in the Alaves box. It would have provoked counter-attacks.

“For that we needed players who move well in space like Leo and him. It was an extraordinary move and the goal let us breathe.”
