Despite Barcelona boasting one of the most formidable front lines in the modern game, all eyes were on Luis Suarez today as he took part in his first training session at the club.
Suarez may have joined the club from Liverpool several weeks ago but a previous stipulation of his ban had prevented him from even training with the Catalan side until now.
Yesterday’s appeal to have his ban reduced was unsuccessful but he was granted permission to train with the squad and feature in friendlies.
In this clip from Barcelona’s official YouTube page, the Uruguay striker takes part in the warm-up alongside new team-mates Xavi and Iniesta.
The squad move on to a game of keep ball with Suarez’s efforts earning him a round of applause from Lionel Messi and Neymar.
