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.
