Juventus and legend Bonucci, who ended in ‘catastrophe’, “prepare for legal proceedings”
- on Sep 12, 2023
The relationship between Juventus legend Leonardo Bonucci and the Juventus club is heading for the worst. There is news that Bonucci is preparing legal proceedings against Juventus.
Bonucci is a Juventus legend. Bonucci, who started his career at Inter Milan, later gained experience on loan at Treviso and Pisa, before exploding his potential at Genoa and Bari before joining Juventus in 2010. Afterwards, he reached his peak as Juventus’ main defender.
He became a world-class center back and Italy’s leading defender. He formed the iron back three along with Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli. Juventus, which had fallen into abyss after the Calciopoli incident, experienced a renaissance in 2010 and became an absolute powerhouse in Italian Serie A again, with Bonucci at the center. Bonucci showed off his best defense every season and led Juventus to its heyday.
However, Bonucci suddenly transferred to rival club AC Milan in 2017. There was friction with the club during his contract renewal process, and Juventus fans criticized Bonucci for moving to a rival club. Then, Bonucci returned to Juventus after a year and regained his top form.
The problem started last season. Bonucci, who had played over 2,000 minutes until the 2021-22 season, only played in 16 Serie A games last season, playing 870 minutes. Due to his aging and frequent injuries, his physical condition has been difficult to improve. Newly appointed director Cristiano Giuntuli prepared to create a new era. The plan was to let go of the veterans and bring in players in their prime or young, promising resources. Several players, including Juan Cuadrado, were eliminated.
Bonucci was also included. Bonucci was left out of the squad and did not appear in the preseason. Bonucci, who was looking for a new team, found a new home in Germany. He went to Union Berlin, which competes in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
During this process, Bonucci expressed his dissatisfaction by saying that Juventus did not provide the player with the training opportunities he should have provided, and it was even reported that he was preparing legal proceedings. The main reason for the complaint is that Juventus did not treat Bonucci properly as a professional player. It is reported that Bonucci trained separately without being able to meet Juventus staff and colleagues and was unable to use the club’s facilities. This seemed to be the club’s intention to deliberately let the player go, and it is said that Bonucci suffered a major blow as a player during that period.토토사이트
Reporter Fabricio Romano, a transfer market expert, said on the 12th (Korean time), “Bonucci plans to take legal action against Juventus. Bonucci’s side said, ‘The player was not provided with proper training conditions, and as a result, his image and professional career were damaged. “It is being claimed,” he said. Italy’s Di Marzio also reported, “Bonucci is preparing legal proceedings against Juventus.”
