Twitter Reactions: Fans React To Chiellini’s Magnificent Performance Against Spurs. [WATCH]

Giorgio Chiellini is magnificent. The almost telepathic anticipation, the celebration of every tackle as if a goal, the Italian is just a Rolls Royce defender who shone tonight as Juventus knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League.

The 33-year-old limited Spurs to just a goal, all the more impressive given the obvious grief which he bore on his face during the minute’s silence prior to the game. The tragic passing of Davide Astori, Fiorentina captain, has stunned the footballing world and clearly affected the centre-half.

As for the game, Chiellini epitomises Italian defending. It is a joyous combination of cunning wit, athleticism and passion. The burly defender glides along the back-four waiting for his chance to hurl himself into the nearest attacker or in the way of the next goal-bound strike 

Watch his night summed up in this video below.
