It was illogical for Leonardo Bonucci to join Milan in 2017, claimed Juventus manager Giorgio Chiellini.
In his autobiography, Io, Giorgio, via Corriere Dello Sport, he wrote: “His year in Milan was special, a decision definitely incorrect because he didn’t have harmony with himself, and not in a logical manner.”
“For a thousand causes, Leo was shaken. I was sad that in the weeks that we were not seeing each other, something occurs.”
“I am confident I might have helped him care about leaving if that had occurred at any moment. Like Antonio Conte they always leave in that July 2014 when I’m not there.”
Chiellini added: “I talked with Leo because something was already established… something from start to finish without meaning.”
“I might understand if he goes to Real Madrid but to that Milan? Luckily, fate managed to have things back in place.”
This season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic and until now Bonucci had played 34 games for Juve this season in all competitions.
