I would sign Ibrahimovic: Juventus’ Chiellini

Turin, Feb 3 (IANS) Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini on Wednesday said that given a chance he would sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic as Juventus striker.

“Ok, if you want to do a bit of fantasy football I’d take Sergio Ramos (of Real Madrid) for the defence, and Marek Hamsik of Napoli for the midfield. For the attack I’d look for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, he’s a player who can change the balance of a team, I’d like to see him in the Juventus shirt again,” Chiellini was quoted as saying by football-italia.net.

Reportedly Chiellini had turned down the offer to wear Italy and Juventus legend Gaetano Scirea’s number six shirt.

Speaking on it the 31-year-old said: “Yes, that’s true. He gave me the opportunity to have that number, but I don’t think it’d be right. It would be like desecrating a myth. It’s a matter of respect too, I didn’t want to do it.

“Since I’ve been at Juventus I’ve always worn the number 3, so I preferred to keep that.”

Asked who he finds difficult to play against in training, Chiellini said: “Paul Pogba. The right word for him is impressive. You can see it in the game, obviously, but in training with less (pressure) on his mind, his class and the complete nature of his technical ability are even more evident.”
