Chiellini: Juventus fans can be proud of Italy influence

Giorgio Chiellini says Juventus can be proud by the number of players they have in the Italy squad.

"Having eight Juve players in the Nazionale is a reason to be proud for everyone, not just the Bianconeri fans," the defender said.

"It is not great to play in a team full of foreigners. We are proud because Juventus have focused on Italians.

"Yes they have bought strong foreign players, but also carried on the policy of bringing through young homegrown talent, so the club is proudest of all."
