Giorgio Chiellini has denied Giuseppe Rossi’s claims that he was nutmegged during training while on international duty last weekend.

Rossi tweeted that he’d megged Juve’s no-nonsense defender: “I’m happy for the nutmeg I made on the great Chiellini a couple of days ago… hahahaha! I told him that I wouldn’t write about it on Twitter :)”

Chiellini responded, joking to his 49,719 followers: “I can assure you that Giuseppe Rossi didn’t nutmeg me, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to walk anymore.”

Who do you believe?

    Just a thing: the translation is not accurate.

    Rossi says “I told you I was writing about it on Twitter :-)”, rather than “I told him that I wouldn’t write about it on Twitter :-)”

    Thanks Jaime. Sorry for mistranslation

    I’m italian. The real translation is ““I told him that I would write about it on Twitter :-)”

    Lorenzo, ‘ti avevo detto’ is ‘I had told you’ (or I told you, also). And I reckon that ‘scrivevo’ is past simple (imperfetto), so I think the ‘would’ doesn’t fit there…
