Juventus defender Chiellini: A tough week for Bonucci

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini insists there's no problems with Leonardo Bonucci.

Chiellini was left out of the Old Lady's squad to face Porto in the Champions League after a row with Coach Max Allegri, but returned to the team for last night's Serie A win over Empoli.

"It hasn't been a calm and relaxing week for Leo, that's normal," Chiellini admitted to TuttoJuve. "However, on the pitch yesterday he showed all his professionalism, responding with actions.

"At the end of the day, the most important thing isn't an individual. It isn't Chiellini, Buffon or anyone else, it's the team.

"Leo has always thought about the interests of the team and yesterday he had a great game. We are lucky enough to have a frank and sincere relationship with each other, and to all live as a family."
