The former Rossoneri coach has criticized AC Milan’s skipper after a poor start at San Siro.
Fabio Capello has slammed Leonardo Bonucci, insisting he cannot defend and was simply lucky to play in Juventus’ system that suited him well.
The Italy international completed a rather controversial move during the summer, swapping Serie A champions Juve for the Rossoneri in a €42million deal. However, he has been struggling to find his form since his arrival at AC Milan.
And former Rossoneri boss Capello, who led Milan to four Serie A titles and 1994 Champions League, has offered his assessment of Bonucci’s qualities.Jose Fonte recalls incredible first memory of Cristiano Ronaldo Andrew Smyth – Jose Fonte has given a fascinating insight into Cristiano Ronaldo by recalling the time he first met the star during his Sporting Lisbon days.
“He’s the best Italian defender when he has the ball at his feet. He’s among the top three in the world,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia.
“But he can’t defend. He has big problems. It was ideal for him at Juventus, where he was free. It’s perfect for him to play in a three [in defence]. Playing in a four is hard.”
The Italy international has played 16 out of 18 Serie A games for AC Milan this season, with his team sitting 11th in the league table.
