BARCELONA, Spain -- Barcelona's president says the Spanish club will ensure Luis Suarez "successfully reintegrates" into football following his lengthy ban for biting a World Cup opponent.

Suarez secured a move to Barcelona from Liverpool on Friday but is banned from all football-related activities for four months after biting an Italy player in Brazil.

Josep Maria Bartomeu says Barcelona backs Uruguay's appeal of the FIFA ban to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, saying Suarez "recognized his mistake and Barca will be making sure he successfully reintegrates into the football world."

Barcelona was undeterred by the latest in Suarez's lengthy list of misdemeanours in agreeing to a $130 million deal. Suarez joins Lionel Messi and Neymar as Barcelona looks to bounce back from its first season without a major trophy since 2007.
