Bonucci: Milan was a big mistake

Leonardo Bonucci shot to fame at Juventus under Antonio Conte.

The Italian defender played alongside Barzagli and Chiellini at Turin. However, in his peak, he left for AC Milan – a move which he till date regrets.

“It was a difficult season for me, both personally and professionally.

“There were some disagreements and, especially after the defeat in the Champions League, I ultimately made a poor decision, but I have to say that the decision, which certainly influenced my career, improved me as a man.

“Those months at Milan let me do some soul-searching and made me realize that my calling was at Juventus, who are like my family.

“I met some beautiful people at Milan, first of all, Rino [Gennaro] Gattuso. It was a difficult year, but that’s not to say it was useless. At the end of it, I was very happy to go back home.”

Bonucci also expressed regret at not being able to play with Zlatan.

“I’d have loved to play with Ibrahimovic,” the 33-year-old said. “He’s a leader, he has character and he’s strong. It would’ve been nice to face him in training.

“He comes across as a tough guy, but he’s a good person. On the field, the players who have character, who are always motivated by the desire to win give you unique stimuli.

“And that’s what I’m always looking for, stimuli to improve.”

To be honest, who wouldn’t?
