Juventus veteran Giorgio Chiellini: Guardiola ruined generation of defenders

Juventus veteran Giorgio Chiellini has rapped Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola for killing the art of defending.

Chiellini believes Guardiola's system has wrecked the careers of a generation of defenders.

He explained: "Guardiolism has ruined a generation of defenders, now everyone is looking to play long, to start the play, in the centres and no Italian defender 'feels' his opponent as before.

"We will never have the Spanish tiki-taka, we'll lose our history, many were angry when I said that Juve would never win 6-0 like Madrid does, but I see that the Merengues are also changing in this sense."

For Italian football to return to the summit, Chiellini adds: "We need more scorers, like we had 20 years ago, but also the return of some 'real' defenders more would come in handy."
