The club was widely criticised for signing Brazil international Paulinho from the Chinese Super League in the recent transfer window.

However, Denis Suarez has come out to defend his Barca teammate, who he feels will be a success at the club.

“I like to watch football and I’ve seen Paulinho playing for Brazil, where he’s demonstrated what he is,” Suarez was quoted as saying by Express.

“He’s a physical player who gives us a lot on a defensive level because he’s so strong. And going forward he adds a lot, too, because he makes those runs into the box, as we saw against Getafe. And then he’s an animal at set pieces, he’s incredible.

“He’s been unfairly criticised, above all because since the moment he arrived, which was just after Neymar left, but anyone who’s seen the Brazil national team knows he’s not a mediocre player.

“I don’t think it was necessary for him to shut any mouths. He’s proving the level he’s at and the importance he can have on the team.”
