Luis Suarez’ 4-month ban for biting was upheld but the terms were scaled back allowing the striker to join his Barcelona teammates on the training ground and in friendly matches. The official presentation of the ‘new’ signing will take place at the Camp Nou on Monday.
The 27-year-old showed up at his first training session in the adidas F50 adizero in the Neon Pink/Running White/Solar Blue colorway and the pink Barcelona training kit. The Uruguayan is still expected to make his Barca debut at Real Madrid in the El Clasico on October 26.
The easing of the penalty will also allow him to play in Uruguay’s friendlies against Japan, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia in September and October.
In addition to training and friendlies, Suarez will be allowed to take part in other promotional events.
