Barcelona coach Valverde: Disadvantage for us that Alcacer plays

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde is delighted for Paco Alcacer over his success with Borussia Dortmund.

Alcacer will face his former club in the Champions League tonight.

“He's a great player and he showed it here and with the Spanish national team," said Valverde.

“Dortmund as a team suit him well and he suits the team too.

"It's a disadvantage for us that he's playing, he knows our players very well indeed."
