His meniscus injury was going to cost him four months of competition, but the stop due to the coronavirus has played in his favor.
The newspaper ‘AS’ claims Quique Setién will be able to count on Luis Suárez from day one after his recovery. He has been absent since Barcelona’s appearance in the Spanish Super Cup, event after which he decided to undergo surgery.

“We have this hope that it will be a great addition. We’ve seen him wor with Juanjo. The other day I was watching on ‘Barça TV’ all the goals he has scored in Barça and I was drooling,” he added.
His reappearance is just around the corner, but he will have to be careful while regaining his confidence, as one always does after knee surgery.
Setién, for his part, warned of the danger of returning too soon. “The virus has not been the same in all countries, and decisions are being made according to the reality of the country, as interpreted by its rulers,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to finishing. I wouldn’t like to win the championship this way. But if it can’t go on, it would be common sense for it to stay the same. We have to complete the championship if the health circumstances are right,” he added.
Likewise, the Cantabrian said he was worried about the state of mind of his pupils. “We will really see how the players are when we start contacting them personally,” he explained.
“And we will see how we are adjusting to the new regulations. Our sport has been one of contact and now we’ll go through a stage where you can’t interact. It opens a door that nobody has opened. You’re going to get to the Sports City and we don’t know if there will be fear or not. There are uncertainties”, he said, to finish
