Evra exclusive: I'm still waiting for Suarez apology over race row

In an exclusive interview with ITV Sport, Juventus defender Patrice Evra promised he would shake Luis Suarez’s hand before Saturday’s Champions League final in Berlin, despite revealing the Barcelona striker has yet to apologise for the racist abuse towards him that earned the Uruguayan an eight-match suspension in 2011.

Speaking to ITV Football's chief reporter Gabriel Clarke, Evra admitted that he has no problem with Suarez despite the lack of an explicit apology.

"I don’t want his apologies," Evra told us. "It doesn’t matter, it’s no problem for me. But when we are going to play the game, I will shake his hand. He will never be my best friend, but this is not a problem.

"The past is the past. I am really proud of my colour and I will shake his hand like I did with Manchester when we play against Liverpool. My game is against Barcelona, it is not against Luis Suárez, but I will make sure he will feel me on the pitch."
