'Reborn' Barzagli enjoying retirement

Former Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli has revealed that he ‘feels reborn’ since retiring as a player.

Barzagli hung up his boots at the end of last season, and the 38-year-old admitted he no longer felt able to keep performing to the best of his ability.

“I decided to retire because I felt I’d given everything I had to give,” he told L’Ultimo Uomo.

“Physically I was not as good as I was in the past, but it’s not just that. Above all, I’d reached a mental limit.

Time's up for Rugani

Daniele Rugani takes one step forward and two back at Juventus, as Wayne Girard warns it’s time to move on.

This was meant to be Daniele Rugani’s year, having learned from the BBC of Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini, the best defensive trio of this past generation. Instead, the Italy international finds himself unappreciated at Juventus.

When looking at the defence from a statistical point of view, one sees that not all has been right for the Old Lady, with an aging and jostled backline. This past season, Juventus saw its highest total goals allowed since the BBC trio’s unification.

Good riddance, Chievo

The Flying Donkeys once won hearts as plucky underdogs, but Emmet Gates saw them become the epitome of mid-table mediocrity and a Serie A eyesore.

There was once a time in which Chievo conquered the heart and minds of football fans. There was once a charm to their story: the team from the northwest district of Verona, with a population of less than 5,000 people, that rose through the Italian football pyramid to make it to the top flight and not just play with the big boys, but beat them.

“People seem to take Sarri for granted, but a decision hasn’t been made yet and there are still a lot of names being mentioned,” Barzagli said during an awards ceremony in Catanzaro.
