Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini is convinced of only good times ahead.

The Bianconeri will inaugurate their new stadium with a friendly against Notts County, the club that inspired their club colours in 1903, on September 8.

Chiellini said: "I am about to begin my seventh season with the Bianconeri. It was a real disappointment not to take part in last night's friendly, but I am still recovering from a knock I picked up on Wednesday against Spain.

"I can't wait to play in our new home. I haven't been there since the restructuring work began, so I am truly curious to see and experience the old Stadio Delle Alpi area. I can only imagine the atmosphere for fans and players!

"We feel so much enthusiasm around us this season and it motivates us all."
