Bonucci – Victim of the ‘carrot and stick’ policy at Juventus

Having spent seven years with Juventus, winning six scudettos, three Italian Cups, and reaching two more Champions League finals, Leonardo Bonucci is an undisputed legend in Turin.

But when this midfielder left, only captain Gianluigi Buffon expressed gratitude via Twitter, while the rest were strangely indifferent.

`Comrades and comrades. We have walked the same path, gone through successful paths. I wish you all the best, but I will miss you very much…`, Buffon wrote in gratitude to Buffon.

According to a reputable football forum about Juventus, the team’s dressing room changed during the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

As if agreeing with Alves, Bonucci jumped in to criticize the Argentine striker.

Barzagli responded by pointing out that it was Bonucci who was responsible for the first goal.

The fire that broke out in the locker room burned Juventus’ will to return for the second half.

Bonucci is Juventus’ hero, but he also made a mistake in the situation where the home team lost the first goal in the Champions League final in May.

For Bonucci personally, last season was a bad season in terms of relationships.

When it came time to choose, the Juventus board of directors chose Max Allegri, and of course the person who left had to be Bonucci, or before that, Dani Alves.

Great saves by Bonucci

`Juventus, must be ruthless to survive`, is the title of an article by writer Keir Radnegde in the October 1985 issue of World Soccer magazine.

The reason here is that Gianni Agnelli – who was the Club President at that time – saw that all four players had reached a critical point in both enthusiasm and ability when contributing to Juventus.

Juventus has a tradition of liquidating the team’s big stars, when they feel their presence could harm the team.

In 1996, Juventus made another strong roster change by sending out Gianluca Vialli, Fabrizio Ravanelli, Pietro Vierchowod, Paulo Sousa, and Massimo Carrera.

The noteworthy point is that both of the above purges took place right after Juventus won the C1 Cup (1985) and Champions League (1996).

Even the iconic Alessandro Del Piero had to part ways, when Juventus felt it was necessary to pave the way for a new era.

Juventus is the most successful in Italian football history for many different reasons, part of which comes from the stubbornness that has been inherited through many generations of leaders.
