Juventus captain Chiellini admits growing up an AC Milan fan

Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini admits growing up an AC Milan fan.

Chiellini was speaking to junior Juve fans when he made the admission.

He stated, "I was a Milan fan, unfortunately, then I got better. I became smarter growing up. Maldini was my favourite player.

"I have a twin brother, he was a Juve fan and I had to go against him and be Milan. Can you imagine how happy he was when Juve bought me when I was 20 years old?

"When I moved here I immediately fell in love with the club, and now I think it's difficult to find a bigger Juve fan on this earth than me."
