Evra: I will make Suarez feel my presence

PATRICE Evra has promised Luis Suarez a torrid time at the Champions League final in Berlin when the Uruguayan hitman will face off against his old Manchester United foe and Giorgio Chiellini, the man he bit in Brazil.

"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," said Evra (inset) after Juventus dumped Real Madrid out of the competition and set up a final clash with Suarez and Barcelona.

Evra laughed at the idea that Juventus will lack experience against Barcelona on the big night and pointed out that he has been in five Champions League finals.

"They are human beings. People forget on Juventus' team there are a lot of players who have already won the Champions League. There are players who have played in finals, like myself. This is my fifth final.

"You never know. I believe in everything because if I didn't believe we can win against Barcelona, I would ask the manager not to play me."
