Marotta: Juventus proud Chiellini Italy captain

Juventus director Beppe Marotta says the club is proud Giorgio Chiellini is Italy captain.

Chiellini led Italy for last night's 1-1 draw with Poland.

"There are many Juventus players all over the world on international duty and that is reason to be proud," Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

“A new era begins for Italy and we hope with good results, because that is the most important thing.

“We are very proud that Chiellini is the captain of this Italy, as it often happens that a Juventus player wears the armband for the Nazionale."
