Suárez unveiling blocked

Newly signed Uruguayan striker Luis Suárez cannot be unveiled as an FC Barcelona player during his four month ban. FC Barcelona wanted to hold an event away from the Camp Nou, i.e. football venue, but will be unable as FIFA made it clear that, “The ban relates to all football-related activity.

But logically the ban didn’t relate to being transferred between clubs, which is clearly not a “football-related activity.

Yet the need for a centre-back has now stopped being just evident; it is rather best described as urgent. Still, the big question remains – Why is it so difficult to get our man?
