Suarez receives Golden Boot, eyes Barca debut

Suarez receives Golden Boot, eyes Barca debut
Barcelona forward Luis Suarez is looking forward to ending his FIFA ban and says he will be fit to face Real Madrid if selected later this month.

‘There’s not long to go and my eagerness to play is always there,’ Suarez said on Wednesday as he picked up a Golden Boot award, which he shares with Cristiano Ronaldo. The two forwards were Europe’s top league scorers last season with 31 goals each.  The Uruguay international is suspended for four months at club level - and nine competitive internationals - after biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup in Brazil.

Suarez could make his competitive Barcelona debut alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar on Oct. 25, a day after the ban ends, when the Catalan side visits Madrid.
