Juventus deleted Bonucci and McKinney from the team

Juventus deleted Bonucci and McKinney from the team

Apparently, Juventus Turin cut a large number of people on their team. According to a media report, it affects the former captain – and ex-Schalke player.

The foundation in Juventus’ defense – so far: Leonardo Bonucci.

Leonardo Bonucci has played for Juventus Turin since 2010, with the exception of one break. According to a report, the traditional club from Piedmont should not squabble with its captain. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the European champion was surprisingly excluded from the squad by his employer.

Sports newspaper reported on Friday that the 36-year-old was informed of the decision by those responsible for the record while on holiday in Tuscany. Former Schalke player Weston McKinney (24, contract until 2025), who is on loan to Leeds United, should also not be part of the squad for next season.

Will Danilo take over the bandage?

It is also said that defenseman and 121-time national player Bonucci should not be allowed to train with the team or participate in the planned trip to the USA. If Juventus confirms the facts, the veteran will have to look for a new club a year before the end of his contract in order to secure the hoped-for nomination to the 2024 European Championship in Germany with match training. Brazilian Danilo is said to be the new captain at Juventus.

Recently it is no longer unchallenged

Last season, longtime top performer Bonucci played a supporting role at Juventus under coach Massimiliano Allegri. Even in the national team, the defender is no longer indisputable. In 2021, when the Italians won the European Championship, he formed the center back alongside captain Giorgio Chiellini, who was two years older than him, and played a key role in the success.

Chiellini left Juventus last year for Los Angeles FC in the United States. He also ended his career in the national team in 2022.

Juventus begins the new Serie A season on August 20 with an away match against Udinese Calcio.
