‘Stones and Maguire are good but lack Chiellini’s grit’

Fabio Cannavaro has spoken out about England’s centre-back pairing John Stones and Harry Maguire, claiming that they lack the determination of Giorgio Chiellini. The Italian legend, 48, remains one of only three defenders in the history of the sport to have won the Ballon d’Or. His 2006 triumph added him to a short list of defensive winners that contains Franz Beckenbauer and Matthias Sammer.
