In an interview for GdS, Giorgio Chiellini who just turned 32, has left some interesting words about his new colleagues.

“We raised the quality with Pjanic. He can give us a lot in open play and on dead balls, he scores and he produces assists.”

“We signed some great players and the only departure was Pogba. We already knew that Morata and Cuadrado were unlikely to stay.”

“We raised our level in the attack with Higuain and the same thing happened in the other departments.”

“There is so much quality here that when everyone is together, it’s a real pleasure to work. In fact we reach higher levels of intensity in training than in the matches, because we’re defending against Gonzalo and the others, rather than against teams that close up shop at the back”

“We mustn’t take anything for granted, of course, but we must also avoid being alarmist or needlessly nervous. We need to be relaxed when playing the ball, but also more determined.”
