Italian defender and victim of Luis Suarez's latest bite Giorgio Chiellini has spoken for the first time since FIFA confirmed it's ban on Thursday. The Liverpool striker was handed a four-month suspension from all football and fined 100,000 Swiss Francs:
"Now inside me there's no feelings of joy, revenge or anger against Suarez for an incident that happened on the pitch and that's done. There only remain the anger and the disappointment about the match," reads a statement from Chiellini on his own website.
"At the moment my only thought is for Luis and his family, because they will face a very difficult period.
"I have always considered unequivocal the disciplinary interventions by the competent bodies, but at the same time I believe that the proposed formula is excessive.
"I sincerely hope that he will be allowed, at least, to stay close to his team mates during the games because such a ban is really alienating for a player."
