Down with AC Milan, Bonucci Stay FIFA’s Best Team
Leonardo Bonucci was down with his club at this time, AC Milan. Finally, the 30-year-old defender received a red card while playing against Genoa at the San Siro on Sunday (22/10/2017). He was expelled the referee after nudging the face of Genoa player, Aleandro Rosi to bleed.
However, Bonucci’s quality remains unmistakable. Monday evening (23/10/2017), Bonucci included in the composition of World Team XI FIFA World 2017. He accompanied compatriot Gianluigi Buffon who was selected as the best goalkeeper. The other nine players are Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Dani Alves (PSG), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Luca Modric (Real Madrid), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), Neymar (PSG), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), and Lionel Messi (Barcelona).
The entry of Bonucci in this list is inseparable from his performance and performance while still playing for Juventus last season. He contributed berandil deliver the Old Lady champion Serie A and Coppa Italia, and qualify for the Champions League Final although eventually lost 1-4 by Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, due to a red card he received in the match against Genoa, Bonucci was sentenced to two ban appearing. The Serie A relief considers that the mistake of the AC Milan captain is because he elbowed the Genoa player when the ball did not lead him. That means, he will be absent in the face of his former team, Juventus on Saturday (28/10/2017).
With Bonucci’s absence in the next two games, AC Milan captain’s tires will return to Riccardo Montolivo’s arm. The 32-year-old midfielder has recovered from injury since last week and is ready to appear as a starter. As is known, before the arrival of Bonucci, Montolivo is the captain of AC Milan.
Before this moment too, Bonucci reportedly also wanted to return the captain’s armband to Montolivo, ie when AC Milan bowed Sampdoria 0-2 at Marassi Stadium in the fifth week of September. However, his attitude was received a negative response from his partner.
