Juventus

defender

Giorgio Chiellini

has claimed that his love affair with the club will never end, and after confirming his international retirement, he stressed that he does not know what the next step will be for him.

A year after winning Euro 2020 with

Italy

, Chiellini will play his last game against Argentina at Wembley. Italy did not qualify for the World Cup, so the Juventus defender will not be in Qatar. Now the 37-year-old defender has emphasized that he does not know what the next step will be, given his retirement from international duty.

He said:

"My love affair with Juventus is not ending. It will never end.

"The love is so strong that as far as I am concerned, but also I think it will never end.

"Of course, from now to the end of the season I do have to evaluate everything, talk to my family about what is best.

"Let’s reach fourth place first and win the Coppa Italia, then we’ll sit down with my two families – at home and Juventus – to figure out what is best for everyone.

"It was the same last summer. I took time and didn’t sign the new contract until after the Euros. At my age, you can’t look too far into the long-term, but that’s only natural, it’s all fine.

"I hope you can see that I am happy, relaxed and want to keep enjoying myself with my team-mates, then we'll see."
