Di Canio: Juventus Made The Right Call In Selling Bonucci

Paolo Di Canio has backed Juventus’ decision to sell veteran defender, Leonardo Bonucci, as it will restore harmony in the dressing room.

Bonucci is leaving the Serie A giants for their rivals AC Milan, in a deal believed to have cost £42 million.

Di Canio believes it was the right move, as the Italy international was no longer getting along with Allegri.

“Was I surprised by the transfer? In some ways, yes. In some ways, no, because obviously what happened last season to Bonucci with the manager and with the club – at a club like Juventus this can’t happen,” Di Canio told Goal.

“They can sacrifice even the top footballer because they want a very nice atmosphere. They want a team that stays together, a unit.

“You can have some problems sometimes but if the problem is big, then you can sacrifice any player. This year was the right time [to leave] for Bonucci and for the club, but I was surprised that he ended up at AC Milan.”
