Video – Marcotti hopes Bonucci and Chiellini don’t play in 2022 World Cup

October 9, 2021 - 10:00 pm

Throughout Euro 2020, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci were the driving force behind Italy’s triumphant campaign.

And yet, Italian journalist Gab Marcotti is hoping that the Juventus duo get dropped the team ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar due to their advanced age.

The journalist was speaking during “The Gab and Juls Show” on ESPN, and when Julien Laurens reminded him that he wanted them dropped prior to the European championship as well, Marcotti pointed to the fact that the captain and his vice will be even older by the time the World Cup starts.

    Gab is a goose and simply hates anything to do with Juve. Chiellini was brilliant when he came on at half time against Spain. If he keeps fit, he is definitely worth taking to the World Cup, also for his leadership qualities. Bonucci is younger and can also keep his spot. Bastoni still needs to improve and we would need someone like Mancini to step up as well.
