LUIS SUAREZ is not concerned about returning to Old Trafford for the first time since the handshake row with Patrice Evra in February.
The Liverpool striker has been selected as Uruguay’s Olympic skipper.
Highly-fancied for the competition, the South Americans have been drawn in Group A, alongside Britain, meaning they will open their campaign at Old Trafford against minnows UAE tomorrow.
With in excess of 70,000 supporters expected for Team GB’s opener against Senegal later in the evening, a decent sized crowd should be in attendance for the first match of the double header.
And that might be bad news for Suarez, who suffered fierce abuse on his last visit after the racism row that landed him with an eight-match ban.
Suarez failing to shake Evra’s hand prolonged an argument Alex Ferguson felt ultimately cost Kenny Dalglish his job, and the forward was unrepentant last week when he spoke to a Uruguayan radio station to protest his innocence.
Suarez may be in for more stick, but is not worried about the reception at Old Trafford.
“I am representing Uruguay and that’s all that matters to me,” he said.
“I said before that the English press is what matters least. I am proud to represent my country. I don’t really know Old Trafford that well. I have played one match there.”
