Barcelona striker Luis Suarez says he will be able to play when the Spanish champions return to La Liga action.

Suarez has been out of action since undergoing knee surgery in January but is making progress and is looking forward to making his comeback.

“[My return] is within the possibilities that we’ve been managing and now there’s been a change, but the idea of returning early was clear,” he said.

”My doctor was telling me that I’ve been doing so well and that gave me hope of returning to play as soon as possible.

”The different now is when the team returns, I’m going to be able to play.”

The Uruguay international scored 14 goals in all competitions for Barca in 2019-20 before his season looked to have been ended by his knee injury.

It’s still unclear when La Liga may resume after being suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

President Javier Tebas has said he’s confident the league will be completed and has also suggested European football could resume in mid-May.
