'I don't think I was even at 50%': Denis Suarez admits he was barely fit during nightmare Arsenal loan spellDenis Suarez admits he was barely fit during his loan spell at Arsenal The midfielder made just six appearances during an injury-hit stint with the club Suarez is set to return to Barcelona but he could be sold this summer  

Denis Suarez has admitted that he doesn't think he was even 50 per cent fit during his nightmare loan spell at Arsenal.

The midfielder made just six appearances for the Gunners, spending just 95 minutes on the pitch.

Suarez suffered an injury in the Europa League game at home to BATE Borisov, which continued to effect him. 

Denis Suarez has admitted that he was barely fit during his frustrating loan spell with Arsenal 

Suarez told Cadena Ser: 'At the end of the game I thought that I had torn my groin and they did a scan and saw that I had an oedema [a build-up of fluid] on the bone in my pelvis.

'I thought I had torn something; I was in a lot of pain. And from then on I carried on training with medication and putting up with it as best I could but I didn't feel right and [Unai] Emery didn't think I was right.

'I wasn't comfortable. I don't think I was even at 50%. After 15 days of being at Arsenal, I wasn't right. From the 16th I wasn't even at 50%.'

Suarez made his Arsenal debut against his former club Manchester City but matters soon took a turn for the worse.

He said: 'When I went to Arsenal, I remember that I got there on a Thursday. That Sunday I played against Manchester City. Then we had a break because of the FA Cup. Emery gave us some days off that weekend, [but] I stayed to train. On the Thursday at Bate Borisov I played.' 

Suarez is set to return to Barcelona but could soon leave the club permanently

Suarez is now set to return to Barcelona, where he has two years remaining on his contract.

However, it seems highly unlikely that he will receive sufficient opportunities to impress at the Nou Camp, and a permanent departure seems the best option for both parties. 

Suarez has made 71 appearances for Barcelona in total, during which he has scored eight goals and provided eleven assists.
