Bonucci gets hostile Juventus reception

Leonardo Bonucci was whistled by a section of Juventus fans as he arrived at the club’s headquarters ahead of a return from Milan.

The centre-back joined the Rossoneri last summer in a €42m transfer, a shock transfer which drew the ire of the Bianconeri faithful.

Now just 12 months later he will return to the Old Lady, with Mattia Caldara going to San Siro in exchange.

According to Italian news agency ANSA, there were no fans to greet Bonucci as he arrived at Caselle airport.

The defender did meet some fans before his medical, taking selfies and signing autographs, but he received a more hostile reception at Continassa.

ANSA reports he was whistled by fans, with one shouting “wash your mouth out!” in reference to his celebration after scoring against Juve in Turin last season.

Fans waiting outside also shouted “we’re here for Ronaldo, where is Ronaldo?”.
