Chiellini: «We are on the right track»

Posted on 31/07/2010


After the victory against Shamrock, the defender from Livorno spoke of the situation. «We are working with the coach to give compactness to the team and we are once again finding good play organization».

Less then two weeks of work and already 180 minutes played 90 of which in an official match. Giorgio Chiellini began at top speed just like all the defence. In the two matches against Lyon and Shamrock, the bianconeri only suffered 1 goal (the only one in this pre-season) from a penalty and Storari hardly ever suffered any dangers.

The day after the match in Dublin, in which he had the honour of wearing the captain’s band, Chiellini spoke by means of his official website (, speaking mostly of the defensive aspect: «The risks the defensive suffered were very few. We are working very hard on this. After two years in which we suffered many goals, the first thought of the coach was that of giving compactness to this team».

The first official match of the season has thus been archived positively especially because of the performance. It is a good sign in view of the return match on Thursday but especially for the rest of the season: «I am very happy for the first seasonal victory – continued the defender from Livorno – obtained against a modest opponent but still dangerous seeing that they are already in mid-championship on an athletic level. The route undertaken is the right one. We all want to do well and we are starting to find a good organization of play even though we all know it is still a long way to go».
