Suarez still a good signing despite missing goals, insists Jordi Alba

Who agrees with Jordi Alba? He is adamant that Luis Suarez was a good signing for Barcelona even if he has yet to replicate the form that saw him win the European Golden Shoe at Liverpool last season.

The Uruguay international, 28, has scored just twice in La Liga since his return from suspension and again failed to find the net in the 3-2 win over Villarreal on Sunday.

Nevertheless, Jordi Alba has stressed that Suarez still adds something to the team they were previously missing.

"Perhaps Suarez is having a tough time finishing, but he was a very good signing and he gives us what we lacked," the defender told the official Barcelona website.

"We have several great attackers now and that makes a difference.

"As the coach has said, our bench is very deep with excellent players and there are lots of options."

The Spain international then went on to hail his side's hard-fought win over Villarreal at Camp Nou.

"This wasn't a game that we dominated as we usually do, it was much tougher than usual," he added.

"Villarreal hadn't lost in 18 games, which means that they're very good. The semi-finals of the Copa del Rey will be no easy task."
