    Giorgio Chiellini



    Date of birth: 14 August 1984
    Place of birth: Pisa, Italy
    Height: 6 ft. 1 in.
    Playing position: Centre Back, formerly Left Back
    Current Club: Juventus F.C.



    Since we'll probably need someone to replace Abidal in the upcoming season, this fella comes to mind. Actually I'm a bit surprised I found no thread about him.
    Serie A defender of the year 2008, 2009, 2010. Played as a LB earlier in his career and is currently playing as a CB, so I guess he could be converted again. He's rock solid, hard tackling and excels at heading in corners and at defending set-pieces.

    Opinions on him, anyone ?

    Bit of a thuggish side to Chiello and he is no speed demon. He's been fielded as a fullback a few times this year by Conte. Given that he's basically the heart of the Juve defense, I doubt they'd let him go. Even if they would listen to offers, Chiellini doesn't really have the sort of polish I would expect to see in a Barcelona defender. I say this with all due respect to Chiellini, who I do generally like as a defender despite the club he plays for.

    Edited to add that I've watched Chiello play off and on since he was on loan at Fiorentina. Remember that, Nolan?

    Was a co-ownership deal actually, he was pretty good in his one year in purple for what it's worth.


    Can't see him at Barca though, he's a very stereotypical old school Italian style defender, very solid and poised but also whiney with a nasty streak.

    Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Real Madrid are contemplating a €22 million bid for Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

    He wouldn't want to leave & Juve would be stupid to sell him.

    But about hypothetically joining Barca, though he's solid as hell he wouldn't be the perfect partner for Pique in terms of speed.

    His attitude throughout the match was embarrassing... FIFA should consider bigger punishments for behavior like that...

    I say that as a totally unrelated subject to the bite...

    "True Italian". What does that even mean in this context? He is a cynical defender indeed but he is one among hundreds of such defenders.

    Anyway Barzagli is Juves's best defender.

    I know its a stereotype, but italians have a reputation for being cynical cheats and acting all innocence about it. He is the italian stereotype, but obviously its wrong to say all italians are like that. Many of them are fair, just like players from other countries, and players from other countries can be cheats too.
