Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams says he made an early return from the Africa Cup of Nations because he had unfinished business with Barcelona.

Inaki Williams was directly involved in two if Bilbao’s four goals on Wednesday night as the Basque club posted a 4-2 win over Barcelona after extra time.

The 29-year-old who returned to Spain on Wednesday morning came off the bench to contribute a goal and an assist in the 4-2 win.

Speaking after the match, Inaki said he believed in the abilities of his team to scale the Barcelona hurdle.
