TURIN – Giorgio Chiellini severely attacked his former teammates Mario Balotelli and Felipe Melo in his autobiography.
“ Balotelli is a negative person , without respect for the group – reads the book -.
In the Confederations Cup, in 2013, he didn't give us a hand in anything, something to be slapped.
One even worse was Felipe Melo: the worst of the worst.
There was always a fight with him.
I also told the managers: it's a rotten apple. "
After these decidedly strong statements, Chiellini was contacted by repubblica.it.
The defender of the Italian National Football Team has not regretted what he wrote in his book.
“I confirm, but I have no grudge nor am I interested in having any, if I have to share something with them I will.
I'm not the best friend of all, but they are the only two who have gone beyond an acceptable limit.
As I am made, the problem is not if you play well, badly or if you sometimes have an evening, but if you lack respect and have nothing inside.
Once it's fine, if it's recurring, it's not. "
Balotelli replies to Chiellini.
“I or at least have the courage and sincerity to say things in the face .
Since 2013 you would have had many opportunities to do it, behaving like a real man, but you never did.
Who knows what you will say one day about the companions of today, strange captain …
If this means being a champion, then I prefer not to be.
And I never disrespected the blue jersey. "
Felipe Melo responds to the Juventus defender.
“First of all, it would be interesting to know the episodes to which it refers.
In any case, there is no problem for me in answering 'this defender' …
When I was in Turin, I never disrespected anyone: my teammates, managers, Juventus in general.
At this point, however, I have nothing for him. And I never will.
Does he say that Balotelli is to be slapped and that I am the worst of the worst and that he always risked a fight because of me? Well, he always did it …
And then, sorry: too easy to speak ill of others with a book.
Maybe 'this defender' is still mad at me because when I went to Galatasaray, we slapped them off the Champions League.
Or because then Inter won everything.
And I'm an Interista.
He is like this: he always makes the phenomenon …
And something else comes to mind: we beat Italy 3-0 in the 2009 Confederations Cup, which was then won by Brazil.
Here, maybe even rosica for this. Furthermore, on an international level, it has not won anything.
So I close: saying certain things has proven to be unprofessional.
This is disrespect.
I stop here and do not add anything else, certain things must remain in the changing rooms "(source gazzetta.it).
