Leonardo Bonucci (C)

Leonardo BONUCCI (#19) (C)

Image

A former midfielder who is usually deployed as ball-playing centre-back in a three-man defence (although he is also capable of playing in a four-man defence, both in the centre or out wide), Bonucci is primarily known for his technique, passing range, and his ability to launch an attack from the back with long passes. A tall and strong defender, with a good positional sense, as well as good anticipation, solid tackling, and an ability to read the game and mark opponents, he also excels in the air, and frequently poses a threat from set pieces.
Although he was once criticised for being inconsistent and prone to errors or lapses in concentration in his youth, he showed notable improvements during the 2014–15 season, and established himself as one of the best defenders in world football, also drawing praise from manager Pep Guardiola, who described Bonucci as one of his "favourite ever players". His unique playing style has led Giovanni Galli to compare him to former sweeper Gaetano Scirea. In 2012, The Guardian named him the 88th Best Player in the World. In 2016, his defensive attributes, as well as his skill on the ball, vision, and accurate passing, moved La Repubblica to dub him as “Beckenbonucci”, a reference to former German sweeper Franz Beckenbauer. In addition to his defensive, playmaking and technical skills, Bonucci has also been praised for his leadership.

Bonaventura: ‘Bonucci is fantastic’

Giacomo Bonaventura calls Leonardo Bonucci’s move to Milan “a fantastic thing”, admitting “I didn’t seriously think he’d come”.

The Rossoneri signed the centre-back for €42m from Juventus on Friday, a bombshell transfer after Bonucci had won six Scudetti in a row in Turin.

“All I can say is I’ve never known a summer like this,” Bonaventura told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“We’ve bought players who, at the start of the transfer window, you think ‘yeah it’d be nice if they came’… well they really did come!

“Leo is a winner, a pillar of the national team and his arrival is a fantastic thing. I didn’t seriously think he’d come.

“From what I know of him, his character will be very useful in the dressing room which is coming from troubled years, he’s destined to become a real point of reference.

“Will he be captain? It’s up to [Coach Vincenzo] Montella. Everyone has to be a bit of a captain though, and then in its heart a group knows who the real leader is.”

Still hard to believe that he's a Milan player. And to see how genuinely excited and happy he was to have come here on that first day...wow.
