Leonardo Bonucci says that credit should go out to the whole club after Juventus reconfirmed themselves as Serie A champions for a 33rd time on Saturday.
The 28-year-old, who put in a polished performance in defence during the Bianconeri’s 1-0 victory over Sampdoria, also heaped praise on coach Massimiliano Allegri who masterminded the triumph.
Speaking pitchside he began: “It’s amazing how great this Scudetto feels. We’ve all been fantastic throughout the campaign. Credit to everyone: the players, the staff and also to our fantastic boss.
“Allegri has been intelligent in allowing to us begin the season with a formation we are accustomed to and then gradually transform us into a team that plays attractive football based on possession.”
Despite wrapping up the league title, further challenges await in both Europe and the Coppa Italia, and the Azzurri international wasn’t getting the party started just yet.
“We’ll get back to work as soon as we return to Turin. We’ve still got big goals we want to achieve that would make this season unforgettable.”
Bonucci ended proceedings by devoting the Bianconeri’s fourth consecutive Serie A title to the supporters: “We’re dedicating this to our fans: they’re Juve’s beating heart and are always on hand to help us with their support.”
