Juventus captain Chiellini: We must stay calm in Super Cup against Inter Milan

Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini says they must hold their nerve against Inter Milan in tonight’s Super Cup.

Juve go into the final on the back of victory against Roma on Sunday.

“We must be balanced, a victory like the one against Roma can boost our self-confidence and adrenaline,” said Chiellini.

“We must improve and work hard with humility and confidence. We know that details can make the difference.

“Inter have technical quality, they are physically strong and score many goals from set pieces.

“We disconnect too often during games, there are situations that should never happen, like against Roma when we conceded one or two goals in five minutes in the second half.”

Chiellini also commented on Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure in August.

He continued: “Cristiano used to hide some problems that we had. He was an important player. With a top player like him, it’s easier not to see problems.

“I expected a difficult season after his exit, but we are almost the same team as last season, with Locatelli and Kean and without Cristiano.

“We can reach our targets with hard work, but we should never feel inferior and not burn mental energies, which is something we were not accustomed to doing anymore. That’s the most difficult thing.”
