Chiellini: I want to raise a few more cups

Thu 29 July 2021 | 19:33

Although one might think grabbing the European Championship at the age of 36 is fulfilling, Giorgio Chiellini is far from done yet.

Giorgio Chiellini

has played a crucial role for Italy when they won the Euro 2020, defending impressively alongside

Leonardo Bonucci

.

Although his contract with

Juventus

reached its end last month, he announced that he will play with the squad in the pre-season retreat on Monday.

The captain has been a key player for Juventus since 2005 when he joined from Fiorentina and imagining him playing for another club is not feasible.

After his astonishing performance this summer, the veteran defender was honored by his city Livorno with mayor Luca Salvetti present.

I need a few more days of rest to recover from this month’s disruption, but on Monday I will be happy to start over in Turin,”

said the 36-year-old in the ceremony, according to

Calciomercato

.

President Agnelli has already been exhaustive about the contract,”

declared Chiellini, regarding his contract speculations.

“I don’t think you can even dream of lifting the cup as captain of the national team. We are content to play football and in our own city, but we have gone beyond the most beautiful dream.

“I want to raise a few more cups, because the appetite comes with eating, and wearing a shirt without the Scudetto badge will be an extra stimulus.”
