After the initial financial-bureaucratic problems, Leonardo Bonucci is read to defend the rossoneri colors on the pitch, as a leader and as a captain.
He has yet to play an official match with the red and black shirt but the Italian international is cementing his position as the team’s leader. The 30 year centre back joined AC Milan from Juventus for 42 million euros, in an unimaginable transfer that shocked the world of football. Bonucci is expected to became Milan’s new captain (read here), a return in the old tradition when the captain was an experienced centre back like the legends Paolo Maldini and Franco Baresi.
Leonardo Bonucci, today via Twitter, expressed a motivational message for the new season that has just started and is about to enter an interesting phase with the Europa League playoff games: “Every day one more step, together“. Already a leader ready to inspire his teammates, staring from the next match in San Siro against Shkendija.
