Juventus legend Claudio Gentile has praised the way Giorgio Chiellini adapted to his role at left-back in the Turin giants' 2-0 Serie A victory over AC Milan on Sunday.

Chiellini started the season at centre-back, but was moved to the left last weekend because of the absence of full-back Paolo De Ceglie, and Gentile was impressed with the Italy international's display there.

"Chiellini has the force and power to play any role in defence," Gentile, a World Cup winner with Italy in 1982, told Tuttosport.

Gentile then went on to say that the form of Leonardo Bonucci, who took Chiellini's position at centre-back against Milan, will play a huge role in where the former Livorno defender will play for the rest of the season.

"The performance of the former Bari man [Bonucci] will determine Chiellini's position on the pitch in future."

Gentile also praised right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner following his strong performance at the weekend.

"Lichtsteiner is definitely the best full-back in recent years at the Bianconeri."


Juventus have conceded just three goals in the opening five games of the season and sit level with Udinese at the top of the table on 11 points.

Well, when the recent years are Grygera and Motta there isn't MUCH competition.

Criscito never had a proper chance at LB, De Ceglie hasn't been there either, Grosso and Molinaro well... you know lol

LICHT Very Happy

Chiellini is a monster, top defender
