Barcelona boss Luis Enrique believes Luis Suarez has already proved his worth despite not having even played a competitive game since his 75 million pounds move from Liverpool.
The Uruguayan will still be unavailable for over a month after receiving a four-month ban for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in June.
Suarez could make his debut in Enrique’s first El Clasico in charge of Barca away to Real Madrid on October 25.
And Enrique believes the 27-year-old’s attitude in training has already made him an important signing for the club.
“He is adapting and waiting for his opportunity. He is training as if he could play tomorrow and that was our objective.
“Already, even without playing, I think he is helping us and has been a good signing.”
Barca have started Enrique’s reign with four consecutive wins and four clean sheets for the first time in the club’s history.
