Luis Suarez came off the bench to make his first appearance for Barcelona in a 6-0 thrashing of Leon in Monday night's friendly match at the Nou Camp.

Thirty one days after he signed for the club, Suarez ran out on the pitch to great applause as he was finally unveiled as a Barcelona player in the pre-match build-up.

The 27-year-old, who was cleared to make his debut in the friendly by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, despite currently serving a four-month ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup, was named on the bench.
