Barcelona striker Luis Suarez passes Italian exam

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has passed his Italian exam in Perugia.

Suarez needs an Italian passport to join Juventus as they have already filled their quota of non-EU players after signing USA midfielder Weston McKennie from Schalke 04.

He is eligible for the passport because his wife has Italian ancestors, but first needed to pass the B1 Italian language test.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports Suarez sat and passed the test this morning in Perugia.

It took an hour, going through both oral and written exam questions, and he emerged holding a tube containing his diploma.
