Giorgio Chiellini is one of the finest defenders in the world. A merciless fighter, ready to fill in wherever required and always showing total commitment to the cause: these are the attributes that have made him vice-captain of Juventus.
Beginning his career as a full-back, Chiellini soon moved inside and found the position that best suits his attributes, cementing his place as a mainstay of the Bianconeri and the Italian national side in the process.
The 29-year-old’s aerial abilities make him an asset in either penalty area, and he regularly weighs in with vital goals. And not just headed ones either: he also has remarkable ability with the ball at his feet, as he showed when he dispatched a striker’s finish in the 2013 Super Cup.
The defender also displays his intelligence off the field, having graduated with top marks in Economic Sciences.
