George Chielliniformer soccer player Juventusmade statements in the new series about Federico Church, “Back on Track”. Here are his words: Federico, after his first match in Serie A against Fiorentina, asked me to swap shirts. I gave him mine and he was about to give me his but I said to him: ‘Fede is the debut shirt, keep it. We will be able to give me your shirt in the future. I was sorry to take it away from a boy just starting out. It will be strange for me too not to be there next year but I’ll follow you, you’ll have to fly off by yourself. I will miss everything about the boys, I am aware that everything was really perfect here.”
