Giorgio Chiellini, captain of Italy's European champions, confirmed that he will continue to play for Juventus, signing a new contract next week after his previous one expired on 30th June.
Chiellini, 36, finally cleared the few doubts about his future and reported that next Monday, he will go to Turin to start working with the new coach, Massimiliano Allegri. He did it on the sidelines of an event organised in his hometown, Livorno (Tuscany, centre), where he was awarded for his sporting achievements.
"On Monday, I'll be in Turin, where Allegri is waiting for me. I could even have done with an extra day's holiday. I'll try to finish my career winning more trophies because titles make you hungrier for victories," said the centre-back.
Chiellini's contract with Juventus expired on 30th June and in the next few days he will sign a new deal, probably for two seasons, something that Andrea Agnelli had recently announced.
The defender has played for Juventus since 2005 and made 535 appearances. He won nine Italian league titles, five Italian Cups and five Italian Super Cups.
