Chiarugi was a winger, capable to play on both sides, and occasionally a secondary striker. He played for Fiorentina from 1965 to 1972, scoring 56 goals in 193 matches and winning the 1968-69 Serie A. He transferred to Milan in 1972, playing 154 games and scoring 60 times in four seasons. He played also for Napoli, Sampdoria and Bologna among others, retiring in 1985. He gained 3 caps for Italy.
Gifted with impressive speed, sprints and agility, excellent control of the ball and dribbling ability, Chiarugi was a trickster inside the box, attracting the defenders, who tried to stop him very hardly. He was very capable at shooting on goal, especially in front of the goalkeeper, but he also provided numerous assists. Despite being a great passer, he was criticized for his selfishness and will to challenge every defender instead of playing more with the rest of the team. His shots had good power and most of them were low to the ground and well placed. Mainly left-footed, he could use the other foot well, was accurate with the outside and was often used on the right flank. He was a set piece specialist: several goals came from free kick and even from direct corner. He kicked the ball with the inside left, making it go up and suddenly down with great effect. He was often accused to be a simulator because he fell on the ground at every minimum physical contact. In reality, he simply took advantage of the fact that he was short and most defenders had troubles at taking the ball away from him. He proved to be effective as secondary striker too, especially in the few matches he played for Italy because the national team already had great wingers as first choices. Famous is his assist during his debut match against East Germany on 22nd November 1969, when he started a dizzying counterattack, which ended with Chiarugi delivering the assist for Gigi Riva's diving header.
