Cape Town - Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez may still be out of action for another four months as he serves his suspension for biting Italian opponent Giorgio Chiellini, but Barcelona manager Luis Enrique says the Uruguayan has been training hard and could get a few minutes in today's friendly against Leon.

Suarez's ban was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) last week, however Suarez has been permitted to train with the club and participate in friendlies.

"He has been working hard when training alone", Enrique told BBC Sport.

"So I think he can have a few minute in front of the fans."

Suarez is due to be officially presented as a new Barcelona player on Monday at the Nou Camp when the Spanish club takes on Mexican champions Club Leon.
