Juventus star Giorgio Chiellini says he plans to re-evaluate his future after next season as the defender says he hopes to continue his playing career.
As of 2005, the 35-year-old has been with Juventus, making 509 total appearances for the club.
Chiellini won Serie A eight times while also claiming four Coppa Italia trophies during his time with Juve.
Chiellini, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in August, has been kept out of virtually all Juve matches this season.
Having returned to fitness just before the coronavirus outbreak, however, Chielli says he believes he has plenty left to offer as a player.
“I will see how I feel next year. I will be playing for another year, then let’s see,” the defender said on Instagram.
“I ‘d like to stay in football for another year after that because it’s my life. I ‘d prefer a management job than a coach, but you never know in life,” he added.
On the topic of management, Chiellini admitted he had watched the documentary series surrounding Pep Guardiola and Manchester City during his time away from the game.
Chiellini says that while watching Guardiola ‘s work he has seen greatness as he expressed admiration for the Spanish manager.
“On the one hand, becoming a captain is more tiring than being a phenomenon but you have less pressure at the beginning. Many are 17 years old and have many expectations that ruin a career,” he said.
