Suarez begins training with Barcelona
Text size Aa Aa

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has started training with the Blaugranas on Friday after getting the green light from the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The 27-year-old, who is likely to play in a friendly against Leon on Monday, remains ineligible to play in official matches during the four month period, and his nine game international ban will also stay in force.

Suarez, who signed for Barcelona from Liverpool in a €81 million five-year deal, was suspended after sinking his teeth into Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the second half of Uruguay’s 1-0 win in a World Cup group game on June 24.
