Bonucci’s wife reveals how he feels about his time at Milan: “Even now he tells me…”

By Oliver Fisher -

Martina Maccari – the wife of Leonardo Bonucci – has discussed the experience that her husband had during his brief one year spell at AC Milan.

Bonucci’s Milan spell does not represent a great memory for many Rossoneri fans. Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli paid a big amount in terms of transfer fee and salary to sign him from Juventus under Yonghong Li’s ownership in summer 2017.

The Rossoneri even made him the captain, convinced by his experience of winning with Juve and his status in the national team, but the defender never repaid expectations, so much so that he left the following summer and returned to Juventus.

  1. Bonucci was a major flop at Milan, and possibly the worst and most disappointing signing of the post-Berlusconi era. They made him captain right away, which to me was insulting, to have a renowned Juve player come and be captain on his first day at Milan.
    And he clearly was not worthy of it, and had very average performances.
    Many said without Chielini, he was exposed as an average defender, which is a harsh judgement, but largely true.
    Milan at that point were not good by any means, but Bonucci wasn’t either.

    Today I’m happy to see we have excellent young defenders in Tomori and Kalulu with great potential to be great.

    1. Making him Captain was so so insulting! Signing a player from a rival and making him the leader of the team is really stupid idea from the management we had…. That clearly shows the previous management had no future ambitions or positive energy for the club

  2. He’s one of the biggest blunder ever made by Milan management and it’s a good thing those people already replaced by more competent people.

  3. Fassone sign him 40m euro then Leonardo swap him with injury prone caldara . It is just like AC Milan give away 40m euro free money to strenghten rubentus squad. It is lucky those Fassone and Leonardo only stay 1 years at AC Milan , worst CEO and DS in AC Milan history
