"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."
