Early Life

Giorgio Chiellini was born in Pisa, Italy on August 14, 1984. 

The Italian began playing football in 1990 when he was aged 6. Chiellini was at the academy of Livorno FC, where he started by playing as a central midfielder. He then switched to a winger and finally became a left-back during his teenage days.

In 2002, he was signed by AS Roma, who loaned him back to Livorno for two seasons. Giorgio Chiellini left AS Roma in 2004 without making any league appearance for the club. He was signed by Italian Serie A giants Juventus during the 2004 summer transfer window.

However, he was again used as a centre-back after Juventus’ centre-backs were injured. The Italian proved to be a solid centre-back and eventually made the position his own up to date.
