Barcelona coach Guardiola: We did not sign Ibrahimovic for goals

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is standing by goal-shy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. For their clash with Getafe, Ibrahimovic will keep his place, despite his recent goal drought.

"It is one of those things, but he creates spaces - we didn't sign him to score 25 goals a year, but because he does so many other things," Guardiola said.

"That is why Barcelona made such an investment to sign him."
