Giorgio Chiellini has ruled himself out of the Coppa Italia Final against Napoli, but the Juventus stopper is hopeful for Euro 2012.
The defender picked up a right thigh problem in the closing stages of Sunday’s 3-1 win over Atalanta in Serie A.
“I’ll have my first tests tomorrow to find out the extent of the injury,” Chiellini stated on his Twitter account.
“I was a little worried at the start, but I felt calmer in the evening even if I unfortunately won’t be able to play in the Cup Final.
“However, I’m optimistic that I’ll make the European Championship. We’ll just have to wait a few more days to get a better understanding.”
Juventus will face Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico on May 20.
