BARCELONA, Spain - Few might remember his knee surgery just three weeks before the World Cup, or the two goals he scored in a 2-1 victory over England in his first match in the tournament.The last and most memorable image of Luis Suarez is the striker biting Giorgio Chiellini in the shoulder in a group stage match against Italy, a play that earned him a four-month suspension.Discipline problems have defined the career of one of the most talented and feared strikers in the world. Loved by teammates and loathed by opponents, Suarez has a knack for scoring and controversy.He returns to the field on Saturday, when he makes his Barcelona debut against rival Real Madrid. All eyes will be on the 27-year old Uruguayan, even as his teammate Lionel Messi is one goal shy of the leagues career scoring record, and Real Madrids Cristiano Ronaldo has already scored 15 goals in eight matches.Less than a month after the suspension was announced, Barcelona paid a club-record $130 million transfer fee to Liverpool for Suarez, who was coming off his best season in the Premier League with 31 goals in all competitions. He scored 82 goals in 133 matches with the Reds, but his three years in England were marked by two suspensions for biting and racial abuse.When he is on target, fans call him The Gunslinger. But after biting an opponent on the biggest stage, more people call him The Cannibal.I thought I had ruined my career and feared that Barsa would go back on its intention to sign him, Suarez said in a recent TV interview. Suarez said he sought treatment to help him control his temper.The Chiellini incident was very negative for his career, because hell always be remembered for those things, said Ajax coach Frank De Boer, who knows Suarez from the players years in the Dutch league. He is a very good player and person, a very low-key person. On the pitch hes a warrior, a natural born winner like (Lionel) Messi and Cristiano (Ronaldo).He will battle even in friendlies, and he can score nine goals, but if he misses one, hell be angry, added De Boer, a former youth coach at Ajax who took over the senior team in 2010 after the club sold Suarez to Liverpool, when the Uruguayan was banned for seven matches for biting PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal in the shoulder.In 2011, during his second season with Liverpool, Suarez received an eight-match ban and was fined $62,000 for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra. Two years later, he was slapped with a 10-match ban for biting the arm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.Suarez also made headlines during Uruguays semifinal run in the 2010 World Cup, where he was ejected in the last minute of overtime of the quarterfinals game against Ghana for using his hands to stop a goal. Uruguay advanced in a penalty shootout to face Netherlands in the semis, but lost 3-2 without the suspended Suarez.The disciplinary issues didnt scare Barcelona, which signed Suarez to combine him with Messi and Neymar in a star-studded attack.The native of Salto, a small town 300 miles north of the Uruguay capital Montevideo, cried upon hearing the news of his signing. He would finally join his wife and sons, who lived in Spain while he played in England.I like that he is in Barcelona. He deserves it because he has battled and he has improved each year, De Boer said. Theyll have an incredible attack with Messi and Neymar, although they have to prove that they can play together.Gabri Garcia, a Suarez teammate in Ajax and now a coach in the Barcelona youth ranks, thinks the striker will have no problems getting along with Messi and Neymar, who have combined to score 15 goals for a Barcelona team that leads the Spanish league.Hell be a success with the team, Garcia said. Hes very intelligent and sociable, and hell know how to get along with Messi and Neymar. Therell be no problems.Neymar agrees.Luis is a star, he loves football and its tough for him not being able to play, he said. Its impressive seeing how he works every day to improve the team, how he helps us. Well do a lot of great things.Suarez will get his first chance Saturday to prove Barcelona made the right decision by signing him, if coach Luis Enrique considers he is ready to play against the teams biggest rival. Suarez scored two goals on Oct. 13 in a 3-0 win with Uruguay in a friendly against Oman.He was the most expensive signing, and its nice to see that his hard work confirms what we thought of him, Luis Enrique said. Hes very intense, he improves each day, and he know his time is coming, but hes relaxed. He always wanted to play here and now everything is ready for him to enjoy it. Bruce Bowen Jersey . Ireland was the last unbeaten side in the championship after France fell to Wales on Friday, and was favoured to end a three-match losing run to England with a side with more than twice as many caps, rampant momentum, and added incentive to celebrate Brian ODriscolls world record-tying 139th test cap. Dennis Rodman Jersey . Though the 26-year-old said he was able to participate, coach Dwane Casey kept Johnson out as a precaution. The team sent out a press release on Friday stating Poile was resting and recovering and that he will remain in hospital for further observation. The Predators were preparing for the game against the Wild when Poile was hit by a puck that flew off the ice at him where he was standing in a tunnel behind the bench. Sean Elliott Jersey . New Zealand brushed aside England 26-7 to win the event and reclaim top spot in the overall standings. The All Blacks, the defending World Series champions, won their third tournament this season in style, running four tries past England to claim their 11th Cup championship in Hong Kong and first since 2011. Pau Gasol Jersey . TSN Hockey Insiders Pierre LeBrun and Bob McKenzie both reported Thursday that there have been ongoing trade discussions between the Oilers and Los Angeles Kings over forward Sam Gagner.ATLANTA - Jeff Teague says he never doubted the Atlanta Hawks would be in the playoffs. Even with Al Horfords season-ending injury in December and a 1-14 stretch in February and March, the Hawks made the Eastern Conference field with two games remaining. "Im happy for all the guys," Teague said. "We worked so hard all year. Injuries and everything that can happen to a team happened. We were able to still make it to the playoffs." Teague scored 25 points, Lou Williams had 18 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and the Hawks earned the Easts final playoff spot with a 98-85 victory over the Miami Heat on Saturday night. Atlantas third straight victory eliminated the New York Knicks from playoff contention. Williams scored the Hawks last 12 points. LeBron James finished with 27 points and Dwyane Wade, in his first game since missing nine straight with a sore left hamstring, scored 24 for Miami. The two-time defending champion Heat, who have lost three of four, gave up the ground they gained in the standings Friday by beating Indiana at home and taking a one-half game lead over the Pacers. Miami and Indiana are now tied atop the Eastern Conference with 54-26 records. The Heats 85 points were their third-fewest this season. "Its not finished," James said. "I see the standings. Theres a couple games left and the seeding is changing every day." James and Chris Bosh returned to the floor with 6:42 remaining and Miami trailing 81-72, but DeMarre Carroll stole the ball from Bosh and Mike Scotts fastbreak dunk put Atlanta ahead by 11 with 6:09 remaining. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called timeout to settle down his team, but James missed a jumper and Teague hit a free throw to make it 84-72. James hit a 3 two possessions later, but Teague drove to the rim again for an 11-point lead, and Miami never got closer than eight the rest of the way. Wade finished the first half with 16 points, going 7 for 7 from the field in just 11 minutes. He began the third quarter with an offensive foul, a missed jumper and hit one of two free throwws, but he finished strong before sitting out the final 5:46 to rest.dddddddddddd "It was good, better than I can envision," Wade said. "When youre out so long, youre just thinking of getting your wind back. I think the best thing that happened was the first play of the game, getting that block and then LeBron kind of holding up and letting me get the first dunk. From there, I kind of was into the game." The Hawks never trailed after Teagues 12-footer made it 53-51 early in the third. Carroll finished with 17 points, and Paul Millsap added 11. Scott scored 12 points in a reserve role, joining Williams to help Atlantas bench outscore Miamis 35-8. Bosh finished with 11 points. "Needless to say that was a tough second half," Spoelstra said. "We couldnt get it going on either side of the court. Its disappointing to have this type of performance on the road." Miami visits Washington on Monday and end the regular season at home Wednesday against Philadelphia. The Pacers host Oklahoma City on Sunday and visit Orlando on Wednesday to close the regular season. Atlanta hosts Charlotte on Monday and visits Milwaukee on Wednesday. As the No. 8 seed, the Hawks will play either Miami or Indiana in the first round of the playoffs. "Im happy that we get to play more games and I get to talk more about improving and getting better each practice," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We want to build something here. Miami has been in the Finals for three years in a row. There are a lot of teams that have had a lot of success. It takes time to build your habits." NOTES: A moment of silence was held before the game following the death Friday of Lou Hudson, the six-time All-Star with the Hawks who retired in 1979 and still ranks as the franchises third-leading scorer. ... The Hawks are wearing a black stripe on their uniform to acknowledge Hudsons passing. ... The Heat dropped to 22-18 on the road. ... The Hawks improved to 24-16 at home. ... Atlanta is in the playoffs for the seventh straight year, longest active streak in the East.
