"We are happy with him," said Valverde. "He played in a position that we knew he would perform. He has to help us.
"He has touch, speed, he goes well ... We feel good to have one more player."
On the comfortable win, Valverde added: "We measured ourselves against an organized team, difficult to beat. They tried to close off the game, but the early goal helped. We could score in the first half and have even scored some more goals later."
