Giorgio Chiellini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are two of the oldest footballers in the world right now.
Both stars play in Serie A, and their age has not stopped them from being important players for their respective clubs.
Chiellini remains an important component of Max Allegri’s squad at Juventus, and the defender is also one of the first players to be called up by the Italian national team.
He would be 38 by August, and it is rare to see a player of his age still playing at the highest level of football.
But the defender still makes important contributions and proves every time that he still has what it takes to play football at the highest level.
He was recently asked about when he would retire, and he responded via il Bianconero: “Maybe I have to call Zlatan and decide with him. We could make a video for Sky where we say to each other:” What do you want to do? “,” No, what do you want to do? “,” Ok, we can decide together.”
Juve FC Says
Chiellini has continued to play well when he is fit, and the club will be happy to keep him on.
However, there would be a time when he no longer has the legs to defend effectively.
We don’t know when that would be, but it is almost certain he would be a part of the Italy squad for the FIFA World Cup later this year if the Azzurri qualify.
