Juventus' make-shift left-back Giorgio Chiellini is eager to return to centre-half.

Chiellini has been filling in at left-back for injury-hit Juve this season.

"I'm ready to return into the centre, but it will be up to the Coach to decide," Chiellini told Sky Sport Italia.

"At the end of the day I consider that to be my natural position and I think I play better in that role," he added.

"I'm at the disposal of the squad and I'll be happy to play as a centre-back against Novara."
