Barcelona's Suárez to have treatment on knee problem
Striker Luis Sáarez will have a knee problem looked at next week, after his side's LaLiga clash with Valencia at Mestalla.
Luis Suárez is to have a knee problem corrected during the international break, having been left out of the Uruguay squad for family reasons.
The Barcelona striker confirmed he will begin a course of treatment on Monday, after reportedly complaining of pain during the 4-2 Champions League win over Tottenham at Wembley on Wednesday.
Sits out Uruguay clashes for birth of third child
The 31-year-old was omitted from the Uruguay squad for the friendly matches against South Korea and Japan this month as his wife is expecting the birth of their third child.
"On Monday, I start a treatment for my knee, which has nothing to do with my absence from the national team," Suárez told Uruguayan newspaper Referi.
"I am not going because my wife is expecting family in those days."

Not clear whether issue related to earlier problem
It is unclear whether Suárez's latest problem is with the same knee in which he had pain during the early weeks of last season.
The former Liverpool star has scored three goals in 10 appearances in all competitions this term.
Barça face Valencia at Mestalla on Sunday in their final match before the two-week break from club football.
