Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini spoke to FIFPro official website about the project ‘Mind the Gap’, a project that helps former footballers to prepare for a new career after their retirement. “When you are 20-25, you feel like you are indestructible, but you have to look ahead already. When you are 35 the career ends and there is one new life that begins.”

“I’d like to remain in the world of football after my retirement. Football is my biggest passion and I’d like to have a role behind the desk. I’d need to learn and gain experience without thinking that I already know everything just because I’ve played for Juve and the national team.”
