Juve reviving ex-Milan flops

Leonardo Bonucci and Mattia De Sciglio look like different players in the Juventus jersey than at Milan, explains Matthew Santangelo.

Winding the clock back two summers ago to a very bizarre transfer window in Italy, Leonardo Bonucci – a fundamental pillar in the famed ‘BBC’ of the Azzurri and Bianconeri - left for Milan after a falling out with manager Massimiliano Allegri. In return, but in a separate operation, once-promising full-back Mattia De Sciglio became Juventus property.

Inter send Nainggolan message

Freezing out Radja Nainggolan with a €100,000 fine for repeated tardiness was Inter’s warning to shape up or ship out of San Siro.

The midfielder was officially “suspended from football activity for disciplinary reasons” on Sunday.

Although no formal explanation was given, it is widely reported ‘Ninja’ turned up late repeatedly to training over the last week.

Bonucci: 'Fortunate to be back'

Leonardo Bonucci celebrated an historic milestone for Juventus and felt “fortunate after a period away from home” to be back in Turin.

The defender spent last season at Milan, but returned to Turin after only a year and was initially not welcomed by fans, but seems to have won them over.

He marked an important milestone by donating the jersey of his 300th competitive appearance in a Bianconeri jersey to the J-Museum.

Bonucci: ‘Napoli main rivals to Juventus’

Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci believes “Napoli are definitely the team that can cause us most problems” in the Scudetto race.

The Bianconeri beat Inter 1-0 in the Derby d’Italia last night, leaving Luciano Spalletti’s side 14 points off the pace.

“We knew Inter had excellent individuals, who as a collective can cause you problems,” Bonucci told DAZN.

“So it was a game where we had to dig in and risk something to score, and we did get lucky on some occasions.

Bonucci: 'Fortunate on Gagliardini'

Leonardo Bonucci admits Juventus “were fortunate” when Inter hit the woodwork, but overall kept the Nerazzurri under control.

The 1-0 result was ultimately decided by a Mario Mandzukic diving header on Joao Cancelo’s cross, giving the Bianconeri 43 points in the first 15 Serie A rounds.

“There are many games to be played and we must prove every time that we are ready to take the result whoever we are up against,” Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.

Montella: Gattuso was wrong!

Vincenzo Montella has hit out at Gennaro Gattuso for criticising his physical preparation of Milan’s players but accepts ‘I should’ve left after the Supercoppa’.

Montella led Milan to victory over Juventus in the 2016-17 Supercoppa but was sacked last November for failing to get the best out of the Rossoneri’s new signings, while Gattuso claimed the Diavolo’s players were unfit when he took over.

Mirabelli spills the beans on Milan

Massimiliano Mirabelli spilled the beans on everything from Antonio Conte to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Cristiano Ronaldo and the Leonardo Bonucci “mistake.”

The ex-director of sport at Milan did not hold back when speaking to Sportitalia this evening about his short but eventful tenure under President Yonghong Li.

“They were 15 very complicated months and it’d be hypocritical for me to say we did everything well.”

Bonucci: 'Juventus are clinical'

Leonardo Bonucci said “the greatest quality of this Juventus team is being clinical” after they beat Valencia 1-0 to reach the Champions League last 16.

A Mario Mandzukic goal proved enough to dispose of Valencia 1-0, but as Manchester United scraped a last-gasp win over Young Boys, the top spot in the group is still up in the air.

Evra responds to Milan fans

Former Juventus defender Patrice Evra responds to “frustrated” Milan fans who criticised him on social media.

The Frenchman commented on a post by Paulo Dybala yesterday, stating that Leonardo Bonucci had his smile back as he was playing in the Champions League again.

Rossoneri supporters were quick to point out that they have won the competition seven times, while Juve have done so only twice.

“Hello, hello, this is a message for my dear Milanisti friends,” Evra responded.
