Giorgio Chiellini says the instant “mutual understanding” forged with Massimiliano Allegri will enable the team to maintain their pursuit of further glory following three trophy-laden campaigns.
Top of the pile and off to a flying start with 15 points from 15, Juventus will tackle their first major back-to-back tests of the season when they travel to face Atletico Madrid on Wednesday before hosting title challenging Roma at the weekend.
As one of the stalwarts of the three consecutive Scudetto winning sides, Chiellini is in no doubt that the team’s desire to keep winning burns as bright as ever.
Speaking at an event to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Piazza dei Mestieri, an organisation focusing on the social and cultural development of adolescents, the 30-year-old said: “There’s been an immediate mutual understanding forged with Allegri. We all want to continue the journey we began three years ago and win something at the end of the season. We’ve got an important week ahead of us, and we hope to keep doing well.”
Reiterating his love for the black and white stripes, the defender played down the notion of embarking on a new challenge elsewhere, insisting the Bianconeri remain the only team for him.
He concluded: “I want Juventus to be my last club and I hope to end my playing career here.”
