Chiellini 'not worried' by sub role

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini believes he may have been harshly judged since returning from injury, but nevertheless he is happy to be named as a substitute for Italy.

Prandelli: Recalling Criscito was easy

Buffon: De Rossi has no effect on squad

Chiellini, 28, has recently returned from a knock he picked up during Euro 2012, and some have doubted his form since coming back.

Azzurri coach Cesare Prandelli is likely to name Chiellini's Juve team-mates Andrea Barzagli and Leo Bonucci as his central-defensive pairing for the World Cup qualifier with Armenia but Chiellini is not concerned by the snub.

He said: "The perfect system doesn't exist, it is all about the interpretation of the players. If you've seen my games since I returned, I don't think my performances have been below the norm, perhaps people are judging my displays on one or two incidents.

"Sitting on the bench wouldn't cause me any problems, there are a lot of very good players in this squad. The coach knows me very well, he has some excellent alternatives and he'll make the decisions. I'm not worried."
