Juventus defender Chiellini denies Ibrahimovic rift

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini insists there's no lingering feud with Inter Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic after their push-and-shove on Sunday night.

"It's not true that I don't like Ibrahimovic," he told Sky Sports Italia. "Playing in a game just puts you in situations that are different from normal life, but five minutes after the game I was back to being calm.

"I didn't bump into Zlatan after the game, but if I had I would have had no problem with shaking his hand.

"For 90 minutes we are clearly enemies and as he was their main threat I had to do anything to stop him.

"We are two players who use our physical power, but there was never any intentional niggle."
