Suarez has been suspended for biting an opposition player on three occasions, and is currently serving a four-month ban for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup.
But the 26-year-old midfielder believes the former Liverpool star will put the incidents behind him following his £75m move to Barcelona.
“Suarez is very calm, polite and quiet,” the Croatian international told reporters. “He’s a great man and he said that any biting moments he has had in the past will never happen again.”
Rakitic, who was quoted by Goal.com, also spoke of the enjoyment surrounding playing with the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Xavi, following his own summer move from Sevilla.
“I came to Barcelona to enjoy my football, to work hard, to give my best, to help the team, to share the locker-room with some of the best players in the world.
“Every day I have smile on my face as I go to training and that is most important thing.”
