The Giorgio Chiellini memes keep coming, this time with Patrice Evra putting himself in the place of Bukayo Saka.
It was deep into stoppages during the UEFA EURO 2020 Final at Wembley Stadium when England striker Saka threatened to sprint away from midfield with only Gianluigi Donnarumma left in front of him.
Italy captain Chiellini knew he was beaten, so did the only thing he could – grab Saka by the back of the shirt collar and haul him down.
The image became a meme, including a series of tattoos from creative Azzurri supporters, and now former Juventus defender Evra has got in on the act.
“When I was young I used to steal the Sega and the security guy was like you, my brother Chiellini,” wrote Evra.
The Photoshopped image sees Evra being dragged back by the collar as he sets off shop alarms.
Having played with and against him, Evra knows all too well that you don’t easily get away from Chiellini.
