Juventus coach Allegri: Bonucci case closed

Juventus coach Max Allegri was happy to recall Leonardo Bonucci for victory over Empoli.

Bonucci was dropped for the Champions League against Porto due to their touchline row in the closing minutes of last Friday's win over Palermo.

Allegri said: “There are some things a Coach needs to let slide, others that he has to focus on. The most important thing is to keep a cool head and make the right choices at the right time. If you let your emotions take over, it leads to mistakes.

“Bonucci came back well, put in a good performance and the case is closed. There are moments during a season when you discuss and debate things, it's just unfortunately the whole world saw us and it might've been different if it had happened in the locker room.

“We have a group of great professionals and above all great men. Between us, we managed to give the side a shake-up it needed to stay focused against Porto.

“I have five strong centre-backs and can rest them when needed."
