Barcelona unable to publicly unveil biter Suarez

BARCELONA will not be able to publicly unveil new 95 million signing Luis Suarez because of his ban for biting.

Fifa has confirmed that any event – like that held for star signings Neymar, Cesc Fabregas and David Villa – will be against the conditions of his ban.

The Uruguayan is cannot take part in any football-related event, irrespective of the venue, following the incident at the World Cup.

“The ban relates to all football-related activity,” confirmed Fifa’s head of media Delia Fischer.

Suarez, 27, had his appeal against the four-month ban, plus nine international matches and a 83,000 fine, turned down.

As it stands, the former-Liverpool player will be out of action until the end of October.
