Suarez Remains Banned Until End Of October

Luis Suarez was recently given the all clear to make an appearance for Barcelona in the friendly matches and also to train with the team. However, he remains suspended until the end of October as a result of the four month ban he received from Fifa for biting into Italy defender Chiellini. It is highly anticipated that he will make his debut for his new team in the El Clasico against Real Madrid. Ahead of this match the expectations are that the striker will perform exceptionally well. However, there have also been some doubters who think that the 27-year-old will struggle to settle at the Camp Nou.
Suarez has been a regular goalscorer at all of his previous clubs while his form touched new heights at Liverpool. The forward scored 31 league goals in all competitions to almost lead the team to Premier League success for the first time in their history. However, his move to Barcelona has not been cheap and he has cost the Spanish club an incredible £ 75 million. He has become the fourth most expensive player in the world. There are some who believe that this huge pressure will start to tell on the striker’s form, but Iniesta does not think so.
"It is never easy when you come from another club, but I think he will find a very healthy dressing room and I think he will adapt fine, because his talent is above everything else," said the midfielder about Suarez performing well for the former European champions. After the appointment of Luis Enrique, the club will be expected to challenge for the title after winning no major trophies last season. Barcelona now have one of the most attractive forward lineups in the world, as they also have Lionel Messi and Neymar, who came to the club for around £ 50 million.
