BARCELONA (AFP) - Barcelona will accept Luis Suarez with his "imperfections" and believes he will play a positive role despite his notorious World Cup bite, a top club official said on Wednesday, July 16, 2014.

Barcelona could not show off their new signing from Liverpool because he is serving a four month ban from all football for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

But sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta said: "Luis Suarez is going to play a positive role in the years he will be at Barcelona."

"This is an important point although Barcelona is more important than one player," he added.
