Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has been presented with the Golden Shoe trophy by his former Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish – and says he is ready for his El Clasico debut.
Suarez won the award – for scoring the most league goals in Europe – after netting 31 times for Liverpool last season, the same tally Cristiano Ronaldo managed at Real Madrid.
The Uruguayan later moved to Barca and is coming to the end of a four-month ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.
His debut could come in 10 days time, when he will be eligible to face Barca’s rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish season’s first Clasico, a game you can watch live on Sky Sports 5.
Suarez has emphasised he is fit and raring to go for the game after featuring in two friendlies for his country over the past few days.
Asked if he was 100 per cent ready for the Real match, he said: “If you had asked me that a week ago, before the two games with Uruguay, I may have had doubts.
“But I have played in those two games and I am probably in better condition than I thought I was. So I think I can say now, yes, 100 per cent, I am ready to play.”
