Denis Suarez has become almost a forgotten man at Barcelona in recent months but he returned to action against Sevilla and insisted after the game he will fight for his place.

The midfielder has struggled to impress Ernesto Valverde this season and was frequently left out of the squad. When he did get a rare chance to impress, in the Supercopa de Catalunya, he picked up an injury that ruled him out for several weeks.

However, Denis says he has no intention of leaving and will continue to fight for a place in the team.

“My objective is to triumph here, I train every day for that, in my head I’m not thinking about leaving and I’ll fight to triumph here. That’s my only goal. I’ve always said it, I’m not thinking about leaving because Barca is my club and I’ll fight to be here.

”It’s a happy day as we got a draw in the final minutes and I’m happy to return after two or three months and after injury. I’m happy to come back and I hope I can help more between now and the end of the season.

”I’m happy to participate again after so much time and I want I want is to keep doing so, playing more and earning myself a place in this team.”

Denis replaced Paulinho against Sevilla but it remains to be seen if he’s done enough to make the squad to face Roma on Wednesday.
