Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez: Paulinho has shut up his doubters!

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez insists there's no resentment towards Paulinho.

The Brazil international's arrival has further diminished Denis' playing chances this season.

But the midfielder says: "Paulinho has been unfairly criticised, especially, the moment he arrived, when Neymar left.

"I like to watch football, not the Chinese League, but in Brazil I have seen him and he is showing what he is, a very physical player, who gives us a lot of defensive strength because he is very strong, but attacking too.

"He's an animal! And he helps us at set pieces."

Denis added: "I think he's shut up those people who doubted him!"
