Juventus, Chiellini in the USA. The player’s statements
The athlete confessed to the Gazzetta dello Sport their emotions on the farewell to Juventus and Italian football: “The hardest thing to do was clear out the room at the team hotel where I’ve been in these four years. The empty locker was the last thing, apart from a few old shoes. In the room there was everything, from the European medal, to special jerseys and contracts ”.
As for future programs, he expressed himself as follows: “I need an experience outside, also to end my football career more gradually. I can go to a growing championship and to grow in my turn ”
And after football, Chiellini confirmed that he wants to attempt a managerial career: “I’m ready to play other roles in the field as well, mentally I’d be ready to be a manager. I would like to know and practice everything that happens outside the fields, in the offices, but it will take work, patience and the desire to scarify. The American adventure is also preparatory to the aftermath “.

As for his successor, Chiellini has released words of esteem for what appears to be the heir: “Cats?

You don’t have to put a lot of pressure on him, but he has everything to do well with Juventus and the national team. He is a boy of sure worth “.
