Giorgio Chiellini praises Carlos Tevez, Leonardo Bonucci

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini praises his teammates Carlos Tevez and Leonardo Bonucci for their performances in the 4-1 win over Lazio.

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has hailed the contributions of teammates Carlos Tevez and Leonardo Bonucci.

Tevez, who joined the club from Manchester City in the summer, and Bonucci played vital roles in the Serie A champions' 4-1 victory over Lazio in Serie A on Saturday.

Tevez sealed the win for Juve in the second half, while Bonucci had a hand in two of the goals.

"Carlos is a world-class champion, and as well as his goals he is tireless in tracking back to help the team elsewhere," the 29-year-old is quoted as saying on the club's official site.

"His foray into midfield on 91 minutes, to go and recoup the ball was worth as much as a goal.

"As far as Leo's concerned, technically speaking, he's right up there with the best in the world. We try our best to give him the best possible opportunity to dictate play from the back."

Juventus currently sit second in the Serie A table with two wins in two games.
