Benatia: Great pair Chiellini and Bonucci will continue to succeed at Juventus

Former Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia is backing Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci for continued success at club and international level.

The pair won the Euro 2020 for Italy last month and after Chiellini signed an extension to his Bianconeri deal, they are expected to continue their partnership at club level in the 2021/2022 campaign.

Benatia told TMW: “I think that what Bonucci and Chiellini did at the European Championship wants to say everything, they are two great top players and we certainly don't discover them today.

“When they play together they are even stronger, I think Juventus should consider themselves lucky to have two players like that.

“Chiello cannot play all of them, I have already told him that he will have to be there for the most difficult ones and for those that matter most. I know he would like to play them all, because he is too much in love with the team, but he must understand that his presence in the important matches it is fundamental.

“Let's not forget that de Ligt is also in the squad, already very mature for his age. He is a phenomenon, he will be one of the strongest defenders of the next few years “
