Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini says he has "no problem" with Barcelona forward Luis Suarez and will shake hands with him when they meet for the first time since the biting incident at the World Cup.

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

But, ahead of Saturday's Champions League final in Berlin, Chiellini says he will just be focusing on Suarez's talents as a player and "nothing more."

Juventus teammate Patrice Evra didn't shake Suarez's hand after he was racially abused by the then-Liverpool forward when playing for Manchester United.

But Chiellini says "of course I will (shake hands). I'll hug him happily, too, there's no problem at all."
