The 2014/2015 UEFA Champions League final in Berlin on June 6 will witness a battle between three old enemies (Luis Suarez, Giorgio Chiellini and Patrice Evra) as Barcelona and Juventus cross swords.
The Uruguan forward has had different encounters with Juventus left back Patrice Evra and centre back, Giorgio Chiellini.
3x3Luiz Suarez was slapped with an eight-moh ban by the Football Association during his days at Liverpool for racially abusing Evra. The Uruguan refused to shake hands with the French back in the return leg at Anfield.
“A lot of people ask me this question, it does not matter,” Evra told reporters after their 1-1 drawn game with Real Madrid.
“The most important thing is I play the final, you know. I am proud to be what I am, I am proud about my colour and I will shake his hand, it is no problem, but I will make sure he will feel me on the pitch,” he added.
At the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Suarez shook the entire football universe when he sunk his teeth into Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulders.
