Barcelona coach Valverde delighted with goalscorer Malcom

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde is delighted with the preseason form of Malcom.

The new signing from Bordeaux was again on the scoresheet in the Trofeo Joan Gamper victory over Boca Juniors on Wednesday night.

Valverde said of Malcom: "He played well on both sides, he was playing on the right, and in the end found a way to do well on both sides, just like (Ousmane) Dembélé.

"Malcom has the ability to shoot, as he has shown with the goal."

Of Luis Suarez's form, the coach continued: "He has just joined, but we see him well, he also received criticism at the start last season because he had a hard time scoring goals, but when he started, he did not stop, his guarantee of fight and dispute is always there. He just needs patience and perseverance."
