Eibar coach Mendilibar: Barcelona should be happy with Valverde

Eibar coach Jose Luis Mendilibar was full of praise for his former teammate and Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde after their 3-0 loss.

Valverde got the better of Mendilibar in this one and the Eibar coach reflected on Barcelona's up-and-down start to the season.

"It's not normal for them to lose twice early on, when they usually lose just a couple of times over a whole season," he said after the match.

"They're a great team and they have a great coach.

"Don't doubt him at any point because he's the best Barcelona have."
