Leonardo Bonucci: Why I Returned To Juventus

Italy international Leonardo Bonucci, who re-signed for Juventus on Thursday, has revealed he is delighted to be back with the Serie A giants after just one season at AC Milan.

The centre-back, who is now 31 years old, was involved in a swap deal that saw Bianconeri defender Mattia Caldara move to San Siro as his replacement.

Although some supporters were seemingly not keen to forgive and forget Bonucci's departure last season, the defender told the club's YouTube channel that he feels he has come home.  

"It was difficult to imagine that this would happen, but it is fantastic that it has," the Italian told Juventus' official YouTube channel.

"I am excited. Turin is my home and Juventus is my home, so I am delighted to be back."

Bonucci made 319 appearances in his first spell at Juve, scoring 21 goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
