The LAFC center defender discussed his stellar playing career with Juventus, his alleged run-in with Jordi Alba, and the 2022 World Cup.
Los Angeles FC defender Giorgio Chiellini could feel the might of two of Europe’s largest clubs and two of Italy’s finest managers after seeing Real Madrid defeat his previous side Juventus.
After the preseason game, he gave his thoughts on Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s performance at the team since his return in the summer.
He’s a genuinely wonderful man, according to the results, Chiellini told MARCA.
“He is one of the finest in history and without a doubt one of the best of the past 30 years, therefore I regret not having the opportunity to learn from him.
“At a team like Real Madrid, the coach doesn’t need to impart many lessons; instead, he or she must maintain the team in the best way possible.
“You may have noticed Marcelo, Toni Kroos, and Carlo conversing with one another on the bench during the most recent games. You see what Carlo is capable of, and I find that fascinating.”
The Italian expressed his love for the Real Madrid back line and is someone who understands what it takes to create a solid defense.
They have a really excellent defense and a unique one, but I can’t claim they’re the finest in the world, he remarked.
“I agree with Nacho; he is terrific and has made significant progress in recent years.
Many people didn’t initially consider him to be a decent player, but now I can compare him to players like David Alaba, Eder Militao, or Antonio Rudiger because of how great he is when he plays.
“Real Madrid has great players all over the field; they are superb in defense, midfield, and attack alike. A very large club has earned the right to have won each Champions League in recent years.
