Bonucci: 'Why I left Juve for Milan'

Leonardo Bonucci was asked by a child why he left Juventus for Milan. “Let’s just say the answer would not be suitable for a little girl!”

The defender caused shockwaves around Serie A when he left the Bianconeri after six consecutive Scudetto victories to join one of their rivals.

“I am just starting out with this jersey on my back, but wearing it and winning with it is a ticket to history,” said Bonucci at tonight’s youth academy Christmas celebration.

“Therefore, I hope you all manage to achieve that dream, but make sure you always have fun. I hope life smiles on you.”

A young girl asked the Italy international why he had left Juventus.

“Let’s just say the answer would not be suitable for a little girl! This is making me sweat more than 90 minutes on the pitch. Let’s just say that some things happened that brought both Juventus and myself to this decision.

“As soon as the Milan opportunity presented itself, I grabbed it with both hands, without thinking twice, also thanks to the work of (directors) Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli.

“In life and in relationships, there can be discussions, and we decided to go our separate ways.”
