Chiellini apologizes for leaving on a white season
” We had 10 magnificent years, now place for young people. I give way to many young people, next year I will not be there. Monday, I will say goodbye to my stadium. It is my choice 100%, with joy and serenity I leave this team. Sorry to leave without a win “, delivered Giorgio Chiellini, who could continue his career for another season or two in another Serie A club, or in the United States. OM had sometimes been mentioned, but it could be complicated with regard to the salary and the physical form of the Italian international. In any case, Pavel Nedved, sporting director of the Piedmontese club, made it known that a place was reserved for him in the organization chart when he would hang up his crampons. “ He’s an icon, not just Italian, he’s a global icon. It’s up to him to decide. He just needs to be happy. We are open to everything “Said the Czech leader of Juventus.
