Italian centre back Giorgio Chiellini, bitten by Uruguayan forward Luis Suárez during the match between Italy and Uruguay national teams of the group phase of the World Cup in Brazil, sent Suárez a conciliatory message via his official website:

Dentro di me ora non ci sono sentimenti di gioia, di vendetta o di rabbia contro Suarez per un incidente che è accaduto in campo ed è finito lì. Rimangono solo la rabbia e delusione per la partita persa.

Al momento il mio unico pensiero è per Luis e la sua famiglia, perché si troveranno ad affrontare un periodo molto difficile.

Now inside me there's no feelings of joy, revenge or anger against Suárez for an incident that happened on the pitch and that's done. There only remains the anger and the disappointment about the match.

At the moment my only thought is for Luis and his family, because they will face a very difficult period.
