“There’s always going to be some sort of after-effect when going out of the Champions League, we had it in previous years, so we assumed that would happen again,” the defender told Sky Sport Italia.

“Clearly, we hoped for different results, especially against Benevento, but we did play the derby with Torino in the right way.

“Now this is a difficult game against a team in great shape with a lot of quality. We must be perfect in order to get the victory.”

Chiellini was also asked about the growing rumours on coach Andrea Pirlo’s future and possible axe in case of defeat to Napoli.

“We are focused on the games. Those who played for big clubs are accustomed to this gossip, it doesn’t touch us, with all due respect.

“We are very concentrated on the matches coming up, starting with today.”
