Spanish Club Barcelona enjoyed the remarkable victory against Villarreal after defeating it with 4-0 in La Liga.

Lionel Messi, who remained in the controversy of leaving his club or not, scored in his first game. Notably, Ronald Koeman, who now coaches Barca, tasted the victory of his club and started his era of Barca management in style.

Ansu Fati, who also remained in the spotlight partnering Messi played a decent game at the pitch.

It was young forward Ansu Fati, the 17-year-old who opened the scoring, firing home from a Jordi Alba pull-back in the 15th minute, added a second in the 19th minute after Coutinho led a counter-attack.

Leo added a third on 35 minutes, scoring a penalty after Fati was fouled by Mario Gaspar.

Ronald Koeman’s team added a fourth before half-time when Pau Torres put Messi’s cross, intended for Sergio Busquets, into his own net.

Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets, in post-match remarks, said “It was a good game for us especially in the first half, we were much better than them, we created lots of chances and scored four goals.”

Earlier it was reported that Spanish football club Barcelona agreed to sell its striker Luis Suarez to La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.

Luis Suarez will Atletico Madrid this Thursday.

Luis Suarez has agreed on terms on a reduced salary with Atletico after a move to Juventus fell through because of passport issues.

As per the agreement between Atletico Madrid and Luis Suarez, the club will have to pay him a nominal fee of no more than 4 million euros.

As compared to the 30 million euros a year earnings from Barca a year, Suarez will earn half at Atletico.
