      The 30-year-old praises the club’s collective after securing a fourth successive Scudetto: “We’re a fantastic team and possess great individuals in every department”

      Giorgio Chiellini says every single member of the squad has contributed to the club’s 33rd Scudetto title.

      The 30-year-old put in a typically battling performance as the Bianconeri’s famed rearguard kept a 19th league clean sheet of the season during this evening’s 1-0 win away at Sampdoria.

      Speaking to Sky following the game, Chiellini said: “We’re fantastic in every department, everyone has played their part.

      “We possess excellent individuals like Pereyra who hit the ground running from the start. I didn’t think he’d be as good as he’s turned out to be.

      “I’m in the prime of my career and am more vocal on the field. I’d like to give an honourable mention to the defence. We know how to dig deep and maybe I’m the symbol of these characteristics.”

      Despite many thinking this evening’s Scudetto celebrations would go on long into the night, the players have already got their minds set on the challenges that lie in wait.

      And Chiellini, ever the professional, wants his team-mates to remain grounded for the remainder of the season.

      He concluded: “We can’t celebrate in the same way as years gone by. Our next match is fundamental and we need to approach it in the best possible way.

      “Even though we’ve won the title, there’s still another month to play, and we want to end it in a big way.”
