Luis Suárez will not play the upcoming friendlies Uruguay is set to take part in in the next international break, as he will try to rest his knee for the upcoming FC Barcelona matches, according to RAC1.

Suárez finished the match against Tottenham Hotspur with pain in his knee, although the problem is thought to be minor. He is still a doubt for Barcelona’s match against Valencia on Sunday. He is expected to undergo medical tests to confirm that he will be available.

In either case, the striker could rest during the international break, after which Barça will have a slate of very difficult tests, with matches against Sevilla, Inter Milan, and Real Madrid one after the other.

His teammate, Lionel Messi, will do the same and not meet up with Argentina during the international break.
