Giorgio Chiellini’s announcement that he will quit Juventus after 17 years marks the end of an era.
Chiellini will participate in the remaining two Serie A games for Juventus. But it is unknown if he will continue to play.
After Juventus’ 4-2 loss to Inter Milan in the Collpa Italia final, Chiellini told Italian broadcaster Mediaset. “I’ve done everything I can, and I hope I’ve left something behind.” “It is now up to the others to carry on after these ten fantastic years.
“On Monday, I will bid farewell to my Juventus Stadium, and if I still have enough left in the tank, I may play in Florence. It is entirely my decision.”

He concluded his career with 26 goals and 18 assists. From 2011 until 2020. He was pivotal in Juventus’ 19-trophy run in the Italian Serie A, including nine consecutive Scudetti.
Giorgio Chiellini acknowledged that Inter was the only team in the Coppa Italia final. Also, failing to win a trophy for the first time in a decade will inspire a desire for change.
“I believe Inter demonstrates throughout the season. That they are stronger in every match we played against them and something was missing. I hope that the disappointment of losing three of four games to Inter will motivate us for the upcoming season,” Chiellini remarked.
“I’m disappointed to be leaving after a year without a trophy. But I can accept it after ten years. However, this should be with us for the foreseeable future.”
Additionally, the native of Pisa stated in April that he would retire from the Italian national team. After the June friendly against Argentina at Wembley Stadium.

Chiellini replied, “I don’t know.” “I must discuss this with my family.
“I am pleased to depart at such a high level since I have stated that I did not want to end my career struggling and unable to play at my level.
“I devoted my everything to it. Soon, I will be the largest outside admirer of Juventus. It is impossible to escape after so many years at this club.”
