FIGC president Gravina: ‘I’ll ask Chiellini to work with me’

FIGC president Gabriele Gravina revealed that he plans to offer Giorgio Chiellini a job soon.

The 37-year-old Italian centre back played his last match for Juventus in their 2-0 loss to Fiorentina last night, ending a 17-year association with the club. It’s still unclear whether he’ll continue his playing career in America or if he’ll hang up his boots and retire.

Speaking to Tuttosport, Gravina discussed Chiellini and his intention to offer the veteran defender a job at the FIGC.

“And as soon as the game against Argentina is over, I will ask him to come and work with me. Because Giorgio is destined to become one of the most enlightened managers in Italian football.

“He is serious, prepared, he knows in detail human and economic dynamics. Whoever takes him to work with him makes a great deal and in fact I would take him on immediately.”

The 37-year-old Chiellini has recently been heavily linked with a move to MLS side Los Angeles FC and he may look to experience the adventure before taking on a management role in football.

The Italian defender made 561 appearances across all competitions for Juventus, scoring 36 goals and providing 25 assists. He helped the side win nine Scudetti, five Coppa Italia and five Supercoppa Italiana. The veteran also played a key role in the Azzurri’s Euro 2020 success last summer.
