Chiellini ready to 'hug' Suarez

Posted Tuesday, June 02, 2015 by

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini says he has "no problem" with Luis Suarez and will shake his hand ahead of the Champions League final.

Chiellini ready to 'hug' Suarez

It will be the first time the two players have met since the biting incident at last year's World Cup.

Suarez was banned for four months after biting Chiellini on the shoulder during Uruguay's final group match against Italy last June.

But Chiellini insists he will be focusing on Suarez's talents as a player and "nothing more" in Berlin.

Chiellini's Juventus team-mate Patrice Evra had his handshake refused by Suarez in 2012 after he was racially abused by the then-Liverpool forward.

But Chiellini says "of course I will [shake hands]. I'll hug him happily, too. There's no problem at all."
