Chiellini does not believe De Rossiâ€™s potential inclusion in the Azzurri rearguard would cause offence to some of the specialist defenders in the squad.
â€śIt wouldnâ€™t be a defeat for us defenders because Daniele has trained in that position and he has all the attributes to play it very well,â€ť the Juventus man said at a Press conference.
â€śHaving 23 squad members seems like a lot, but it isnâ€™t. All the Coaches would have chosen someone else.
â€śHaving multi-functional players gives you the possibility to change formation or ways of dealing with the opposition during the match.â€ť
