Ju­ven­tus’s Bonucci ex­tends con­tract

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Look­ing to be­come “even more of a leg­end” at Ju­ven­tus, Leonardo Bonucci ex­tended his con­tract with the Ital­ian club yes­ter­day un­til 2021. The Italy de­fender joined Ju­ven­tus from Bari in 2010 and has made 291 ap­pear­ances - more than any other out­field player at Ju­ven­tus in the past six years. “I am happy and proud of this de­ci­sion to con­tinue this glo­ri­ous and ever more vic­to­ri­ous jour­ney un­til 2021,” Bonucci said. The 29-yearold Bonucci has won five Serie A ti­tles with Ju­ven­tus, two Ital­ian Cups and three Ital­ian Su­per Cups. He was also a key part of the team which reached the Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal in 2015. “I feel an in­te­gral part of a great fam­ily,” Bonucci said. “You achieve this by work­ing hard and al­ways be­ing there for your team­mates, help­ing out when the go­ing gets tough and cel­e­brat­ing all to­gether in mo­ments of joy and hap­pi­ness. “We’ve won so much in the past few years and we know that go­ing for­ward it will be al­ways more dif­fi­cult to get re­sults but life would be dull if you didn’t have some­thing to fight for.” —AP
