Luis Suarez begins training with Barcelona after Cas decision
Luis Suarez trained with Barcelona for the first time on Friday after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) amended his four-month ban.
The Uruguayan was banned from all football-related activity after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup but can train and play friendlies.
The 27-year-old joined his new team-mates for the first time since his £75m move from Liverpool last month.
He told the club's official website he was "realising a dream" by playing for Barcelona.
"I am really happy to feel like a footballer again," Suarez said. "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."
Suarez could also play against Leon FC in the Joan Gampher trophy on Monday.
The former Ajax captain will still miss the first 11 matches of the season for Barcelona, but could return to play against Real Madrid in El Clasico at the end of October.
