Agent: 'No Chiellini contract renewal problems'

Davide Lippi, agent of Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini, says there “shouldn’t be any problems” regarding a contract renewal for the 35-year-old.

Lippi was speaking to Tuttomercatoweb Radio during their ‘Open Stadium’ program, and spoke about the Juventus skipper, whose contract expires in June 2021.

“His renewal will be official only when the club announces it,” Lippi told TMW.

“Then, between us, I don’t think there will be any problems. Giorgio’s will is to go ahead and play as long as he is well and until he feels important.

“His injury has allowed him to work a lot alone, on Sunday he surprised us all with his return to the field early.

“I didn’t even know he would play, to tell you the truth.

“However when Chiellini puts something in his head there is no way to stop him!”

Juve coach Maurizio Sarri joked last week after the 2-0 win against Brescia that Chiellini “substituted himself on” with just over 10 minutes remaining.
