Cesare Prandelli laughs off recent criticism of Giorgio Chiellini and looks ahead to Juventus-Milan. “It's going to be very interesting.”
The Italy Coach was asked for his predictions on Sunday night's big Scudetto showdown.
“One set of players have the Scudetto symbol on their chests, the other is trying with great determination to get back to the top of Italian football after a few years that ended badly,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“They are two important teams and without doubt it is going to be a very interesting match.”
The media has been harsh towards Juventus defender Chiellini so far this season, but Prandelli has not lost faith in the Italian international.
“Chiellini is a guarantee. Andrea Barzagli is also doing well in the Juve defence. As for Milan, Antonio Cassano has been strong since the start of the season, so he just needs to keep it consistent.”
