Juve Star: Pep Has Ruined Italian Defending

By SL International - Feb 10, 2018 11:58 AM

A Juventus star has partly blamed Pep Guardiola for Italy not qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The four-time World Cup winners missed out on a ticket to Russia after failing to win their play-off tie against Sweden.

However, Juve defender Giorgio Chiellini, who retired after Italy failed to qualify, believes Italian coaches' decision to play the Guardiola is way damaging Italian defending.

“Pep Guardiola spoiled and ruined the Italian defender.

“He is a fantastic coach with a fantastic mind but Italian trainers have tried to copy him without the same knowledge and then in the last 10 years, we lost our identity.

“We lost our identity of [Paolo] Maldini, [Franco] Baresi, [Fabio] Cannavaro, [Alessandro] Nesta, [Giuseppe] Bergomi, [Claudio] Gentile, [Gaetano] Scirea... between 1984 and 1995, we have only [Leonardo] Bonucci.

"In 10 years, we didn’t launch one good defender."

Did Pep invite Italian coaches for workshop? Did Pep coach in Italy? Did Pep interfer with any Italian coach's work? Did Pep blame Italians for the way they were playing before? I think Italians ruined their football by doing something they have no idea of.

I think this shows what a great coach pep is. I mean, that's the best compliment I have ever heard. Pep has redefined football. Mentioning him in the same sentence with special one is an insult to the man. He has been there to coach them but they are readjusting. What will happen when he takes over juve, Roma or inter?

“He is a fantastic coach with a fantastic mind but Italian trainers have tried to copy him without the same knowledge and then in the last 10 years, we lost our identity. " They were never forced to copy him, they failed on their own. They are to blame, not Pep. Stop passing a buck.
