Juventus: Chiellini laughs at criticism against Ronaldo

In an interview with Sky Italia, Giorgio Chiellini returned to his future in Turin and the criticisms surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo in recent weeks. The Juventus defender doesn’t see the Portuguese as a problem for the Italian club.

Juventus could lose their Serie A crown this season. The Old Lady’s club, which remained on nine league titles in the Italian league, is currently third after 30 days, 12 points behind Inter Milan . And on the side of Turin, Cristiano Ronaldo crystallizes some criticism, especially after a new premature elimination in the Champions League.

In an interview for Sky Italia, Giorgio Chiellini wanted to defend the five-time Golden Ball, which did not score in the last match against Genoa (3-1) and appeared annoyed several times during the game. . “If Cristiano Ronaldo is a problem, I would like to have many more like this,” swept the Italy international.

“Buffon and I will never be a problem”

Often disturbed by injuries in recent months, with a long unavailability away from the field last year due to a cruciate ligament injury in the knee, Giorgio Chiellini has returned to settle since the beginning of the year in central defense, despite still a calf problem in February.

“The first months of this year are always the result of injury and the difficulty of finding a balance. But I’m happy with what I did from January and the contribution I made,” said the experienced Chiellini. At 36, it was not that easy. “

At Juventus since 2004, Giorgio Chiellini will end his contract next June. “It seems that it is a problem to know if Gigi (Gianluigi Buffon, editor’s note) and I are going to extend or not. We have never been a problem, we are not and never will be”, indicated Chiellini, which does not see elsewhere in Europe than Juventus.
