Barcelona: Fans slate Valverde with Paco Alcacer now firing

Paco Alcacer’s career with Barcelona never really took off. After joining the Catalans from Valencia for £22m back in 2016, the Spanish frontman saw regular first-team opportunities limited at the Camp Nou, not helped by the fact that Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez were all at the club at the time.

Alcacer was subsequently loaned to Borussia Dortmund last summer, with the Bundesliga outfit exercising their option to buy the attacker for €23m this February.

Since he’s played for Dortmund, the 26-year-old has scored 25 goals in 37 games. This season alone the Spaniard has found the net four times in his opening three appearances, alongside providing one assist, per Transfermarkt.

His form doesn’t just stop at domestic football, however. For Spain, Alcacer has also been free-scoring; he was in inspired form against the Faroe Islands on Sunday, finding the net twice in late on at the El Molinón stadium.

His recent performances have annoyed Barca fans, who are confused as to why players immediately improve as soon as they depart the club. Here’s what some had to say on Twitter…
