Uruguay and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is resting at home following a Thursday early morning arthroscopy, and should be back with recuperation exercises as early as next week, according to the latest sanitary report from the Uruguayan Football Association medical team.

 According to the release on Wednesday 21 May, Luis Suarez after normal warming up exercises and during work with ball experienced an intense pain in his left knee. It was first diagnosed as pain from the external meniscus with stable knee and no drain. A magnetic resonance confirmed the partial lesion of the external meniscus.

On Thursday morning via arthroscopic the partial resection of the meniscus was done at a local hospital by one of Uruguay's leading specialists, Luis Francescoli. No other injury elements were detected in Suarez left knee.

His participation in the Brazil World Cup has not been discarded.

As reference it was said that the player received a direct traumatism in his left knee during the last match of the Premier league playing for Liverpool on Sunday 11 May, with intense pain that remitted with sports rest post-competition since he was on vacation since the League was over.

The president of the Uruguayan Football Association Wilmar Valdez said that the kind of surgery to which Suarez was submitted has “a quick evolution”. However given Suarez physical condition if recovery is good, time won't be long.

“In fifteen days he should be ready to play, but they are all speculations. We don't know whether he'll make it to the first, second or third match of the Cup qualifiers”, said Valdez.

Probably the most important factor is Suarez optimism and the huge support he has received from Uruguay and Liverpool fans.

“I'll make it; I'll be there”, was one of the first messages from his twitter.
