Former Juventus captain Leonardo Bonucci will sue Juventus for what he claims is damage to his professional image. The 35-year-old was informed by Bianconeri management that he will not be a part of the clubs plans for the 2023-24 season, leaving him free to find a new club.
The veteran centre-back opted to join Union Berlin before the close of the transfer window, ending his almost 10 year association with the Old Lady.
Goal Italia now report that Bonucci has decided to take Juventus to court with a request for compensation for damages.
The player’s lawyers, Antonio Conte and Gabriele Zuccheretti, will proceed with the legal action provided for in the collective agreement. The action consists of a request for compensation for damages due to the alleged lack of adequate training and preparation conditions available to Bonucci, a situation which ‘would have caused the player damage of a professional and image nature .’
Bonucci has specified that any amount resulting from this action will be donated to Neuroland , an association that supports the families of children hospitalized in the paediatric neurosurgery department of the Regina Margherita Children’s Hospital in Turin and Live Onlus.
