Leonardo Bonucci, defender of Juventus, attacked an Inter Milan leader, technical secretary Cristiano Mozillo, after Alexis Sanchez’s victorious goal on Wednesday in the Italian Supercup.
Alexis Sanchez showered Juventus’ hopes at the last second on Wednesday. The Chilean striker gave victory to Inter Milan against the Old Lady (2-1) in the Italian Supercup at the end of extra time by closely deceiving goalkeeper Mattia Perin. Juve had been preparing for a penalty shootout for a few minutes since Massimiliano Allegri had decided to bring in Leonardo Bonucci, to shoot during the session.
The staff had also urged his players to concede a free kick to allow the change. But the plan didn’t work out with Sanchez’s goal and the defender ultimately never came into play despite having been preparing for it for long minutes on the sidelines. The 34-year-old stood out in another way.
Visibly frustrated by the scenario of the match, he attacked the technical secretary of Inter Milan, Cristiano Mozillo, present at the edge of the field. Bonucci pushed the latter, who may have said a few words to him, even if no echo mentioned at the end of the meeting.
Allegri: “Losing five seconds from the end hurts”
Juve’s setback comes at the heart of a complicated season where the club are only fifth in Serie A, three points behind Atalanta Bergamo, fourth with one game less, and eleven from Inter Milan , leader of the championship. The club is still qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a match against Villarreal (on RMC Sport).
“It was a real game, it was a good test for us to see where we were,” Allegri said after the game. The boys played a really good game, unfortunately football seems to have been invented by the Hell and with five seconds to go we showed some ingenuity. We played against the strongest team in Serie A, we had several chances and conceded little. It’s a stinging defeat, losing five seconds to go and seeing others celebrate hurts. I have nothing to complain about, now conscience and anger must be built in to continue well in the league, the Italian Cup and the Champions League. see the bright side: the players are getting better physically and growing. “
