Juventus coach Antonio Conte is surprised by Giorgio Chiellini's call-up to the Italy squad.

Cesare Prandelli included the defender in his squad, despite the player only just returning from injury.

Conte said: “I expected at least half a call from Prandelli to ask how Chiellini is. I find it a little impolite. Chiellini has not played for three weeks, Friday he has returned to training and we took him to Milan but, in my mind, there was no thought of using him.

“I’m sorry to see him called, so many times the Coach asks for collaboration and availability, which we give a lot, because we provide a lot of players, I expected at least half a phone call."
