Sometimes players let rumors… go, they avoid commenting on them in public, they don’t want to make them look more serious than what they really are, but in this case, Leonardo Bonucci felt it was imperative to answer publicly to claims that he had a fight with teammates during the Champions League final’s halftime in Cardiff.
With reference to what has been written over recent days by certain media outlets regarding presumed arguments and heated discussions which are meant to have seen me and some other teammates of mine involved, I think the time has come to put one thing straight
the Juventus defender wrote on this Facebook account.
Nothing of what has been written, reported and reconstructed is true. There was no argument and certainly no physical acts involving me or anybody else. The break between the first and the second half of the Champions League was like many others where, I repeat, nothing happened
Bonucci cleared out, denying that he ‘attacked’ Andrea Barzagli and Paulo Dybala, blaming them for Real Madrid’s first goal.
These are the only words I have to say on this and I hope they are the last. In case this is not enough to clarify the situation and restore the truth, I am ready to turn to my lawyers to defend my name and my honour
the Italian defender concluded in his Facebook post.
Bonucci is said to be among Antonio Conte’s main targets to strengthen Chelsea’s roster for next season.
