Leonardo Bonucci’s decision to leave six-time reigning Serie A champions Juventus for rivals AC Milan was not due to a falling out with head coach Massimiliano Allegri, according to his wife.
Bonucci sensationally left Juve in the off-season, the Italy international centre-back joining Milan in a €42 million deal.
The 30-year-old’s departure from Turin, shortly after Juve lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, sparked speculation of a row with Allegri. Those claims, however, were dismissed by Bonucci’s wife, Martina Maccari.
“His decision wasn’t due to an argument with Max Allegri,” Maccari told Rai Radio 1.
“In a professional setting, I think balance between all parties is fundamental. Leonardo chose to leave because of the vicissitudes within the environment, but now he’s calm and giving his all for this new adventure.”
