After falling out with Juventus, Bonucci is finding his footing in AC Milan. In a recent interview he opens up on how his Juve career ended.
The centre-back had established himself as a cult figure in Turin, playing two Champions League finals, but though Juve fell at the final hurdle again Madrid in May, he felt things had gone as far as they could for him at the club.
“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,” he told Milan TV .
“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. I was lucky enough to have this offer from Milan, which intensified quickly.
“From now on, I’ll think only of Milan.”
