Suarez Unmuzzled: I Feel Like A Footballer Again

Uruguay striker, Luis Suarez, has given his first interview after being allowed to train with the Catalan giants, following the decision on Thursday by the CAS regarding his sanction imposed by FIFA.

The 27-year-old had the conditions of his ban changed and is now allowed to partake in Barcelona’s team practice as well as in friendly games and official events.

Suarez has joined Barcelona for £75 million a few weeks ago, but wasn’t allowed to participate in any football related activity and revealed the situation was ‘really tough’.

“I am really happy to feel like a footballer again, and to be with my teammates. I just couldn’t wait to get started,” Suárez told Barcelona.com.

"It was a situation that made me feel really uncomfortable. I'm paying for a mistake I made and one I have apologised for, but I have to forget about all this.

"I am only thinking about the future, which is at FC Barcelona, the Club who I dreamed of playing for.

"Now I’ll just have to wait to play again, make contact with the fans, and feel the sensation of playing in a stadium like the Camp Nou.

The striker also thanked his new club after the Blaugrana supported him throughout his appeal and welcomed him despite his controversial history.

"I am very grateful to the Club for all it has done for me over these last few weeks and days. They have been great with me and I appreciate it because I am realizing my dream, to play for Barça,” he added.

Suarez will be officially presented as a Barcelona player around the Joan Gamper Trophy on Monday, but can make his official match debut in the El Clasico on 26 October.
