    I don't think that this is a valid stereotype. Don't confuse winner mentality with being cynical or cheating. Chiellini does not cheat, he is just your typical "no-nonsense defender" that sometimes goes over the top. Not much different from Ramos actually. Chiellini just happens to escape punishment more than he deserves in Serie A.

    He can be a defensive beast on his day but also a laughing stock.

    If I was Carlo I would pressure Juve's back-four. If the right pressure is applied then players like Chiellini and Bonucci will be prone to making mistakes.

    Stupid penalty but was otherwise awesome in both legs. Must've made like ten clearances today. It'll be interesting to see Chiellini vs Suarez again.

    that's smart considering that 4/10 footballers go broke after retirement.

    Ironically, the ones that aim for a Bsc and masters degree to plan ahead are the ones that wouldn't go broke regardless.

    He had problems with Kane during the first half but stepped up massively in the second half.
