The captain to the probable last Juve-Inter: “We wanted to congratulate the champions in the most correct way in our opinion. What did we miss this year? Continuity. And with the coach we deliberately took a step back, but we gave him our soul ”
He has climbed positions in the internal hierarchies, and who cares about the almost 37 years, because despite the 2-0 defeat the work he had done in the first leg against Lukaku was from another time. This time the Belgian needed to find his first career goal to the Lady from the spot (on a penalty obtained by Lautaro), in order not to give him one on action Giorgio Chiellini ended up putting his name on the wrong side of the scoreboard, even if on that 2-2 initially not assigned for a foul on him (later validated by the Var) the Juventus captain has amply voiced his recriminations. “I can’t say what I think – joked the blue -. Everyone on the pitch sees things differently, we have to think about the many good things and other less good things done on the pitch ”. And despite the episode he was certainly among the best in the field of Juve-Inter, according to many his last Juve-Inter. “It’s premature to talk about it now, let’s get through this week’s games.” Here it is.
“Important, difficult, against the strongest in Italy as Inter showed this year and confirmed that they are a great team tonight”, commented Chiellini, who was also keen to point out the position of the group on the team as captain. theme of Hall not done: “We have been a team as we have not succeeded all year, the result has rewarded us. We congratulated the Inter players one by one in the locker room because they deserve it. It is a speech that we have faced and we still wanted to congratulate. The rest seemed a bit exaggerated to us, also because in the other years it wasn’t even done to us. But it is right to compliment, in my opinion we also did it in the most correct way, without showing it too much to others, but with the right substance. But just to close the discussion “.
The relationship with Pirlo
It is interesting, in reading the dynamics of an objectively “different” season for Juve, also to understand from one of the senators par excellence the relationship of the locker room with Andrea Pirlo: “I have always been good, respecting the roles. We have never allowed ourselves to enter the coach’s choices, we have always respected him as a coach. You cannot have the same relationship as there was until a year ago: for our part we have deliberately taken a step backwards, but we have given him our soul as always in all respects, without ever putting him in difficulty or overwhelming the its role. There must be hierarchies. We are available as with all the other coaches. Its future? In a few years I hope to be able to answer you as a manager, but today I am still a player … ”.
In the meantime, however, two assessments on the regrets of the season can be made. The biggest? “Continuity. We have made no more than three wins in a row. Too few. We made other good performances like today, the championship was not a disaster. But we did some good games, some bad ones … You can’t fail to have continuity ”. And something also transpires when he talks about the match: “In the final suffering we brought out that pride, which I don’t know if it will lead us to the Champions League, because realistically we deserve to be where we are, that is, to play it until the end and not to be already qualified. like Atalanta. But we try, until the end. On Wednesday we have a cup that we care about because it is always a trophy and in recent years we have understood how important they are. Today I think it is premature, then on Sunday evening all the necessary assessments will be made ”. Even on a personal level.
