Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has revealed that his one-year spell with AC Milan has improved him as a player.
The 32-year-old arrived at Milan back in July 2017 for a fee of €42million, signing a five-year deal with the club and being named the captain upon joining.
However, things did not exactly go to plan that season for the centre-back who struggled to recreate the form he had at Juventus, and he was subsequently allowed to move back there with Gonzalo Higuain and Mattia Caldara coming the other way.
In August, former Milan CEO Marco Fassone has revealed his belief that signing Bonucci from Juventus in 2017 was ‘a mistake’.
Bonucci spoke to Turin-based outlet La Stampa, reflecting positively on his time with the Diavolo.
“They improved me: I am more reflective and I have corrected some flaws,” he said, as per MilanNews.it.
“I thank Milan, but Juve is my home: I know I am in the right place.”
