Juve slam ‘allusive’ Oriali

Juventus defended their recall of Giorgio Chiellini and criticising team manager Lele Oriali’s “allusive comments.”

The centre-back was ruled out of Tuesday’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Norway by injury and at first the Italy camp stated he would remain with the squad.

Today Juve changed their minds and called Chiellini back to Turin.

Italy team manager Oriali said the Federation and the player were “disappointed” by the decision.

“Should this sudden U-turn be seen as a Juve snub towards Conte? You can translate it any way you like…”

This evening Juventus responded with a statement of their own.

“After the confused issue around Giorgio Chiellini’s release from international duty, Juventus Football Club wish to reaffirm the pledge to collaborate with the Italian Federation, as it historically has done for over a century.

“The statement released on the player last night and the allusive comments from the team manager, Gabriele Oriali, do not change this orientation.

“We cannot enter into open contrast with common sense, nor with the recovery needs of an injured player who cannot be used for the qualifying match in Norway, the closing moment of this Nazionale get-together.”
