Giorgio Chiellini is a Surging Age-Less Defender
Giorgio Chiellini and the Top 10 Defenders
The European leagues are in full flow as teams rally in this second half of the campaign to achieve their goals.
Defenders have been in fine form for their respective clubs around the continent, but this week we focus on the ageless Giorgio Chiellini.
The 36-year-old doesn’t seem like he would stop soon, and after helping Juventus keep three clean sheets in his last three games, he deserves a mention on our top ten.
We highlighted Stefan Savic as the best the last time we talked about defenders, and the Atletico Madrid man has continued his fine form.
They haven’t had so many clean sheets since the last rankings, but he has been in-form and making sure they remain top of the league table.
Chiellini breaks into our top four after his recent fine run of form, but he isn’t alone as a newcomer.
John Stones has been important to Manchester City’s resurgence this year, and he makes an entry into the top ten as well.
Chiellini has kept the younger likes of Matthijs de Ligt on the Juve bench this season and has been in fine form.
His run of three successive clean sheets on the team has shown his importance.
Despite struggling with injuries, he has been rated 6.73 by Whoscored and has a pass success rate of 91.7%. On our list Giorgio Chiellini jumped from unranked to #4 in our rankings.
