Bonucci’s special goal dedication

Juventus stopper Leonardo Bonucci dedicated his goal in last night’s 3-0 win over Napoli to his soon-to-be-born son.

The defender opened the scoring in somewhat fortunate circumstances before the Old Lady took complete control of the tie.

“My little boy, Lorenzo, will be born in July,” he stated after the game. “I dedicate this goal to him and also my wife.”

Bonucci has featured heavily this term under boss Antonio Conte even if mistakes have led to some jeers.

“The faith of the Coach is at the base of everything,” continued the former Bari player. “I also feel the belief of the club and the side in me.

“The whistles directed towards me? They have certainly made me stronger in character,” continued the centre-back.

“I like to play football with the ball on the ground and that happened at Bari as it does here. This makes things easier for me.”
