Luis Suarez is expected to return like a new signing for Barcelona, as stated by Eder Sarabia, Quique Setien’s assistant coach.

Luis Suarez is close to regaining full fitness and is expected to return stronger once La Liga resumes action.

The 33-year-old was already ruled out for the season after undergoing surgery on a recurring knee injury.

Suarez has recovered well since then and recently stepped up his rehabilitation.

The suspension of La Liga could mean the Uruguayan could end up playing a part in the remainder of Barcelona’s campaign.

Setien had a video-conference with his coaching staff who were happy to give him positive news on Suarez. Eder Sarabia has been sharing training regimes with the forward and gave his verdict on a return to action.

“We’re hopeful that he will be like a great new signing,” Sarabia said as quoted by Marca.

“Until now there was a summer window, a January window and then a period of confinement.

“We have this belief about Suarez because we’ve seen him work like crazy to recover quickly.”

Before his injury, Suarez was having a stellar campaign with the Catalan giants, scoring 11 league goals and supplying seven assists in 17 apperances.
