Juventus defender Chiellini says no fallout from ugly Cavani bust-up

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini insists there's no fallout from his clash with Napoli striker Edinson Cavani last night. During the 1-1 draw, Chiellini was spotted pulling Cavani's hair and the Uruguayan reacted by swinging an elbow into the side of his face, but the Napoli striker escaped with only a yellow card.

"What happened can be seen on the footage," said the Juventus defender on Sky Sport Italia.

"We spoke afterwards and it's only right that for 90 minutes we knock each other about, but at the final whistle it's all over. It stays on the pitch and is a great challenge to be taking on champions."

The pair proved it was all behind them by embracing and exchanging shirts after the match.
