Juventus's Giorgio Chiellini says he will shake hands with Luis Suarez when they meet for the first time since the Uruguayan bit him at the World Cup.

The Barcelona forward, 28, was banned for four months for biting Chiellini on the shoulder during Uruguay's group match against Italy last June.

The pair are set to line up against each other in the Champions League final on Saturday in Berlin.

"I'll hug him happily, too, there's no problem at all," said Chiellini, 30.

Chiellini's Juventus team-mate Patrice Evra was refused a handshake by Suarez after he was racially abused by the then-Liverpool striker when playing for Manchester United.

Chiellini said of Suarez: "I have no problem with him and I think it's the same for him.

"I have to think about him as a player, how he moves, his great skill but nothing more."
