Chievo to retire Pellissier shirt

Chievo have unveiled their plans to give club legend Sergio Pellissier a suitable send-off, as he hangs up his boots at the age of 40.

The striker retires this summer and spent most of his career in the Chievo jersey, on their books from 2000 until today, taking them to their first ever promotion into Serie A.

With the final top flight game at the Stadio Bentegodi against Sampdoria on Sunday, at 11.30 UK time (10.30 GMT), the city of Verona wants to pay tribute to Pellissier.

Chievo announced there will be a special choreography in the stands before kick-off, with all Pellissier’s 112 Serie A goals shown on the big screens in the stadium.

The mascots who walk out with the two teams will all be wearing Pellissier’s Number 31 jersey and the Chievo shirt has a special patch representing their captain.

At the final whistle, the Curva Nord gates will be opened, allowing for a peaceful pitch invasion, then Pellissier and his family will be presented with a special trophy and his Number 31 shirt will be permanently retired.

Former Chievo Coaches and teammates will be present, including Gigi Del Neri, Maurizio D’Angelo, Salvatore Lanna, Fabio Moro, Luciano, Simone Tiribocchi and Bernardo Corradi.
