Luis Suarez appears to have pushed his disappointment with Barcelona behind him as he looks forward to exciting times with his new club Atletico Madrid.
The 33-year-old forward completed a two-year move to Los Rojiblancos in a deal around £5.5 million after parting ways with the Catalans this month.
Though the circumstances surrounding his exit from the Nou Camp was not palatable, the Uruguay international is moving on with his life.
New Barca boss Ronaldo Koeman was said to have told him he has no future at the club and his contract, which was due next June was mutually terminated by the La Liga outfit.
However, after training with his new teammates for the first since his move, the former Liverpool star said he is ready for the challenge.
"Hello, Atletico fans. I'm already here wearing my new shirt. "I'm really excited to play and have fun on the pitch.
"Thanks a lot for the support and all your messages. 'Now it's time to enjoy and achieve important things this season."
Suarez spent six years at Barcelona - winning 13 major titles including one Champions League and four La Liga trophies.
He also became the club's third-highest goals scorer with 198 goals from 283 appearances across competitions.
