TURIN. A brief meeting at the Continassa, the handshake with the president Andrea Agnelli and the Juventus adventure of Giorgio Chiellini continues. Today the Juventus captain renewed his contract, which expired last June 30 during the European triumphs won by Italy, finding an agreement to play another two years. Everything as expected, therefore: the defender enjoyed the holidays after the great feat with the national team and on his return to Turin he signed the extension until June 2023. Chiellini has been Juventus since 2005, he went down to Serie B after Calciopoli and is the only player to have won all nine league titles in this unrepeatable cycle. Now he is aiming for a personal star, for the tenth Juventus tricolor, and for the Champions League which remains as much a dream as it is an obsession. However, the Qatar World Cup between November and December 2022 is also in the sights: doing it with a two-year agreement will be an additional stimulus and security.
«Giorgio Chiellini is Juventus. It has been a long time since it seemed always – so Juventus announced the renewal of the contract on its website – and it is an always that will continue for the next seasons; in fact, the renewal of his contract with Juventus is official. Giorgio is Juve DNA, he is history, he is present, he is grit and passion, he is heart and head. Giorgio is a thousand figures, a thousand numbers, many records, many trophies, but also nine letters ». The first is the C of Chiellini and in this case of Captain: “Because Chiellini is everything a Juve captain must be: he is a fundamental presence, in defense, in the locker room, on the training ground”.
