Captain of the Italy team has been an amazing leader. He directed his side to succeed at the 2020 European championship. Chiellini’s last contract with the Serie A club Juventus was out of the agreement and had ended on the final day of June the time Italy were part taking in the Euro 2020 tournament.

“Giorgio Chiellini embodies everything that Juventus stands for, and it is through his commitments excellent displays over the last 16 years that have earned him a contract renewal,” said Juventus.
“There is an overlap in Giorgio’s DNA and that of Juve’s. He forms a big part of Juve’s history, yet also the present and the future,” the club further added.
The declaration of the contract extension was anticipated precious week with the chairman Andrea Agnelli telling that the club was waiting for Chiellini to come back from the holidays he went to after his victory with the Italians against England at the Euro final and the campaign ended for his country’s favour as they became the Euro 2020 champions.
The centre-back has been with the club for long since 2005 and have been the pillar of the squad that earned nine consecutive Serie A trophies.
