How many times have you wondered what it feels like to be sitting on the seats of the Press Room at Allianz Stadium, with a microphone in your hand and the possibility of asking a question to a champion like Giorgio Chiellini?
It’s a unique journalistic experience. But also, an experience for the Junior Members.
Our young fans (around twenty overall) turned into young reporters today, in what as the first seasonal edition of the Junior Reporter, and they addressed a series of questions to the Juventus Captain.
Giorgio didn’t hold back, as he answered all the children’s queries and curiosities. From his sports life ("Food is important for you children, and you must try to eat well"), to the family ("My life goal is to give love to those who love me").
He also didn’t hold back in providing some technical tips: “Do you want to be a defender? You have to take pleasure in stopping the action of your opponents, like the one you feel when you score, and you always have to anticipate the attacker,” replied the skipper, who also recalled the moment he arrived at Juve: "It was immediately a great love, and now I think it's hard to find a bigger Juventino on earth than I am!"
"Fear? It is positive,” he added. “It makes you stay focused, but if there isn’t enough of it, it blocks you. When the game starts, everything passes, and you can play at your best.”
In short, this was Chiello in 360-degrees, the one that spoke openly in front of a young audience of Juventus journalists: "Thank you, because it was the best press conference of my life," he concluded.
And it has to be noted that our Junior Members (who also had the opportunity to have fun with Jay and visit the Allianz Stadium) will not forget an afternoon like this.
