A lot has been said and written since the day Milan announced they had reached an agreement with Juventus over the transfer of Leonardo Bonucci, several explanations have been given regarding what led to the Italian defender’s breakup with Juve, and now he shared his side of the story with Milan TV.
When you are part of a group for seven years, you leave something – I hope – beautiful inside each of your former team-mates. I had intense seven years with Juventus, in which I gave so much to them and vice versa
the Italy international started telling Milan’s TV channel, before expanding a bit on why exactly he left the Bianconeri.
In the last part of the last season, this bond had faded a bit on both sides and thus it was decided for us to go our separate ways
Bonucci said, avoiding, obviously, giving details on what exactly caused the ‘bond’ to ‘fade’.
I was lucky enough to have this offer from Milan, which intensified quickly. From now on, I’ll think only of Milan
the 30-year-old defender said, before expressing his admiration to some of Milan’s legends.
The players who played for Milan when I was a child are legends for what they’ve won and given to football. Then, when I got bigger, Nesta became my idol and I went on to become a defender
Bonucci revealed. Last, he talked about his goal with Milan, promising to do his best to
help this jersey back to its previous heights.
