Barcelona‘s Luis Suarez has been allowed to train with the team after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) lifted his stadium ban.
Even though he cannot play competitively until late October – with his first appearance potentially set to be against Real Madrid – the 27-year-old expressed his delight at being able to practice with his team-mates.
“I’m very happy to return to playing football and to be with my peers,” Suarez told Barca’s official website.
“It was a situation that made me uncomfortable. I’m paying for a mistake I made and have already apologised, but this should be forgotten.
“We must think about the future – [which] is to be at Barcelona, the club where I had dreamed of playing.
“I am very grateful to the club for all they have done for me in the last weeks and days. They have treated me very well and I appreciate that.”
