Bonucci thanks Lazio fans

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has thanked Lazio fans who dedicated a song to his son Matteo on Sunday.

The Bianconeri won the game 2-0 at Juventus stadium, but the away supporters took time to dedicate a chant to the youngster, who has seemingly now recovered from an unknown illness.

"Thanks to the Lazio fans for the song at the end. Respect and honor to you," the Italian international wrote on his Instagram page.

Bonucci then commented on a return to form for the Bianconeri, after a defeat to Fiorentina in the previous round.

"This is the very soul of Juve. It does not matter how, it doesn’t matter who. What counts is how we take to the field.

"That we play as eleven in both halves. A spirit of struggle, sacrifice and availability. The road is this. Now full speed ahead."
