Bonucci the right choice for AC Milan captain

Italy international Leonardo Bonucci is the right man to lead AC Milan next season, team manager Christian Abbiati has said. The 30-year-old was a surprise arrival at San Siro earlier last month after he decided to end his seven-year association with Serie A champions Juventus last month.

Bonucci had not featured for the Rossoneri’ 3-0 aggregate win over Universitatea Craiova in the Europa League as his transfer was deemed to have not been completed in time.
