Juventus defender Chiellini: I would take Pazzini over Gilardino

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has been asked who he’d prefer to have in his team – Giampaolo Pazzini or Alberto Gilardino?

Sampdoria striker Pazzini and Fiorentina's Gilardino have both been linked with Juve.

“I have to say Pazzini,” stated the Juve central defender.

“Giampaolo is more technical and has a great leap on him, while Alberto is great at keeping hold of the ball and allowing the team to come forward.

“Nevertheless, I’m biased towards Pazzo as we are both Tuscan and we’ve known each other since we were very young.

“We often went out for dinner in Florence and I’d be happy if he, a friend, arrived.”
