Chiellini could still teach many defenders' - Mancini impressed by Italy veteran's performance

Giorgio Chiellini returned to action for Italy in a 1-0 win over the Netherlands, his display impressing Roberto Mancini.

Roberto Mancini says Giorgio Chiellini could still teach defenders around the world how to do their job after he made a commanding return to Italy action.

The 36-year-old made his first international appearance since June 2019 on Monday, delivering an excellent performance as the Azzurri beat the Netherlands 1-0 in the Nations League clash in Amsterdam.

Chiellini had surgery on a torn anterior cruciate ligament last September and only managed four appearances for Juventus in 2019-20.
