Bonucci: 'Set example for De Ligt'

Leonardo Bonucci said Juventus must “each give more in the absence of Giorgio Chiellini and I must set the example for Matthijs de Ligt.”

The Bianconeri host Napoli at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for the line-up and LIVEBLOG.

Bonucci is joined by De Ligt making his Serie A debut in defence, as Giorgio Chiellini tore his anterior cruciate ligament and is out for approximately six months.

“Each of us must give more in the absence of our captain. I must set the example for the many young players, above all Matthijs, but also Merih Demiral and Daniele Rugani,” Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.

“De Ligt showed his potential for Ajax, it’ll take time to adapt, but he will show his great quality from tonight too.”
