Giorgio Chiellini to retire from international football this June

Giorgio Chiellini has been one of the finest defenders in world football for the better part of the last two decades. The Italian with 116 appearances for the national side is currently the joint 5th most capped player for the Azzurri.

The 37 year old, along with winning the Euros last year has achieved third place finishes in the 2004 Olympics, FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and UEFA Nations League 2020–21.

The Juventus legend spoke to DAZN regarding his international career following the club’s 2-1 win at Sassuolo.

“I’ll say goodbye to the national team at Wembley,” Chiellini told DAZN after Juventus’ 2-1 win at Sassuolo.

“Where I experienced the pinnacle of my career winning the Euros,” said Giorgio Chiellini.

“I’d like to say goodbye to the Azzurri with a nice memory. That will certainly be my last game with Italy,” he added.

“My love affair with Juventus is not ending, it will never end,” said Chiellini. “Of course, from now to the end of the season I do have to evaluate everything, talk to my family about what is best.

“Let’s reach fourth place [in Serie A] first and win the Coppa Italia, then we’ll sit down with my two families – at home and Juventus – to figure out what is best for everyone.

“It was the same last summer, I took time and didn’t sign the new contract until after the Euros. At my age, you can’t look too far into the long-term, but that’s only natural, it’s all fine.”
