Moise Kean: Leonardo Bonucci ‘expressed himself badly’ over racist abuse of team-mate, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri says

Massimiliano Allegri claims Leonardo Bonucci ‘expressed himself badly’ when commenting on the racist abuse team-mate Moise Kean received during Juventus’ defeat of Cagliari.

Bonucci opened the scoring against the Sardinian club on Tuesday with Kean adding Juve’s second late on, after being subjected to racial abuse from a section of the home support.

The forward celebrated his goal in front of the Cagliari fans as a response to their abuse, and Bonucci said after the match that Kean must shoulder half the blame for being abused due to his actions.

“I think the blame is 50-50, because Moise shouldn’t have done that and the Curva (Cagliari’s ‘ultra’ fans) should not have reacted that way,” said Bonucci.

“We are professionals, we have to set the example and not provoke anyone.”
