The defender denies tensions with the coach
Leonardo Bonucci doesn’t fit. The Union Berlin defender denies rumors of disagreements with coach Urs Fischer after his exclusion from the lineup for the Champions League match against Napoli. The Germans, defeated 1-0 by the Italian champions, collected their ninth defeat in as many matches played this season.
“Without being surprised anymore, I once again read invented news about myself. I have constructive discussions with the coach on a daily basis, I was welcomed very well and we all absolutely want to get out of this situation, especially for the fans, extraordinary for their closeness and dedication. I have always respected the decisions of each coach and that was the case yesterday too”, writes Bonucci on Instagram. “As I have already had the opportunity to write over time, in a team game the We always comes before the I. The desire to play was unquestionably great but today the individual definitely takes second place compared to the need to defend the team, because in the end these biased news end up damaging her and not me, who am accustomed to certain unpleasant situations to say the least. Check carefully before speaking, Forza Union!”, adds the former Juventus captain.
