Suarez signed for the Catalans from Liverpool this summer in a £75m deal, but can’t make his debut for Barca until October 26 as he is serving a ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

However, the 27-year-old has been turning out in some reserve fixtures and scored his first two goals for his new club in the Barca B match with Indonesia Under-19s.

Yet many claimed that Suarez looked chubby during that encounter and since then many have had their say on the issue and now his head coach Luis Enrique has spoken out on the subject.

“Suarez overweight? Not at all, that’s just press talk. That’s his normal weight, he was like that in Liverpool too,” Enrique was quoted by Goal.

The Uruguay international is set to make his debut for his new club in the first El Clasico of the 2014/15 season against Real Madrid.

Suarez could make up one third of arguably the most formidable attacking line in world football, joined by fellow South Americans Neymar and four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi.
