Barcelona coach Valverde delighted with spirit for Rayo win

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde was delighted with their spirit shown for victory over Rayo Vallecano.

Valverde was pleased with his side's response.

Raul de Tomas opened the scoring for Rayo, but Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez hit back to seal the win for the hosts.

"We didn't have the first goal go in our favour," he said.

"The positive way to see it is that when we fit together, the team does very well.

"We have come through very complicated games."
