Patrice Evra has lashed out a warning at Luis Suarez stating that he will make sure the Uruguayan “feels his presence” when the pair go head to head in the Champions League final.
Evra’s Juventus side booked a meeting with Suarez’s Barcelona in Berlin next month after knocking out Spanish giants Real Madrid with a 3-2 aggregate win on Wednesday night.
The pair had clashed when they were both in the Premier League.
The former Liverpool forward snubbed Evra during the pre-match handshakes at Old Trafford in 2012 as they met for the first time since the striker was banned for eight matches for racially abusing the Frenchman.
On the prospect of going up against Suarez again, Evra told reporters:
“A lot of people ask me this question. It doesn’t matter. 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 feels my presence on the pitch.”
