Suarez more 'prominent' now, says Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique believes that Luis Suarez is playing a more "prominent" role at Barcelona following his goal in the 3-1 win over Granada.  

The former Liverpool man struck twice in midweek as the Catalans overcame Manchester City 2-1 in the Champions League and followed it up with another impressive performance in Andalusia.

Luis Enrique has defended the summer signing's performances in a slow start to life in Spain but believes he is coming into his own now.

"Perhaps he is now more prominent than before but since he started with us he has been playing at a high level. For us he keeps doing a good job," he told reporters.

The former Roma and Celta Vigo boss went on to praise his side's performance, particularly in the wake of their midweek European exertions.

"First of all, I am very happy and satisfied with the work done by my team, it was very difficult after the Champions League game," he told reporters.

"I want to congratulate the team for the win, the good thing for both teams was to string three passes together considering the condition of the pitch."
