Having spent nearly a third of his life at Juventus, it is not surprising that Giorgio Chiellini will always have a special place in the hearts of Bianconeri fans and he certainly was not short of birthday wishes on social media.
On the club's official Twitter and Facebook accounts, supporters were asked to share their favourite moments from one of the Old Lady's most faithful servants.
As the messages came flooding in, it was clear how he has cemented his place in the hearts of Juve supporters everywhere. Fearless in the tackle, willing to put his body on the line and possessing a great sense of humour, Chiello has offered up a host of great memories.
For many, it was too difficult to choose just one moment from Giorgio's stellar career so far in the famous black and white jersey. Instead, they honoured the defender's consistent and unbridled passion on the field, summed up perfectly by this clip from @kassemnehme.
