The Uruguayan has bitten players on the pitch three times, most recently Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup. The other two were Branislav Ivanovic last season, and PSV’s Otman Bakkal in 2010. On each occasion a larger punishment has been given, last summer’s bite meriting a four month ban which ends this weekend.

The 27-year-old said, “I think all the bad things I have been through are in the past. I believe I am on the right path now, dealing with the people who can help me, the right kind of people.”

He went on to explain that he now understands why his biting is considered worse than less unusual foul play…

“There are other players who react by breaking someone’s leg, or smashing someone’s nose across their face. What happened with Chiellini is seen as worse. I understand why biting is seen so badly.”

Suarez will be hoping to make his competitive debut for Barcelona in Saturday’s El Clasico at the Bernabeu. Barcelona are yet to concede a La Liga goal going in to the hotly contested derby, while Real Madrid have won their last eight games in all competitions.
