Capello: 'Bonucci can't defend'

Fabio Capello gave a damning description of Milan and Italy star Leonardo Bonucci. “He’s great with the ball at his feet, but he can’t defend.”

The former Juventus centre-back has struggled since the €42m transfer to San Siro this summer.

“Bonucci is the best Italian defender with the ball at his feet, in fact one of the best three in the world,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia.

“There’s a big problem, though: he can’t defend. He had the ideal situation at Juventus when he played as a sweeper. He is perfect in a three-man defence, but struggles when there are four.”
