Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has hit back at claims that he became overweight during his four-month ban for biting.
The £75m Barcelona signing had to wait until October before making his La Liga debut, having been suspended by FIFA for chomping on Giorgio Chiellini during this summer’s World Cup.
Suarez was indirectly accused of chomping [on food] too much during his time away from the game, with the media jumping all over photos of him looking slightly heavier than usual during a Barcelona B friendly against Indonesia U21s.
However, Suarez has dismissed suggestions that he was ever ‘fat’, countering those accusations by claiming that he is one of Barca’s fittest players.
In the video below, he says: “I was never overweight. It was just as Luis Enrique said on one occasion: ‘Tell me when you see Luis Suarez thin’.
“The doctor who carries out the medicals at the club said that I was one of the six players at Barcelona who had the lowest percentage of fat and lowest weight. It was all part of the newspapers’ game.”
