Barcelona striker Suarez: Beating Inter Milan very, very valuable

Luis Suarez was delighted with Barcelona's fight-back for their Champions League win over Inter Milan.

Suarez struck twice in the 2-1 victory.

"It's a very valuable victory against a direct rival," Suarez said afterwards.

"We reacted, in some ways, to correct the errors of the first half. We knew that if we kept playing that way then we could lose.

"We were patient, and this is important because we created chances."

Suarez credited Ernesto Valverde with Barcelona's stronger second half performance and the alterations the coach made at half-time.

"He told us to be more organised when pressing," Suarez said about his boss's half-time team talk.

"That's why we have a coach, to correct these mistakes.

"It's also a compliment to the opponent because they have very quick players and they took advantage of the space we left."
