Bonucci has thanked Internazionale for showing him the door last summer.
â€śI left Inter for market reasons and I joined Genoa,â€ť he stated on Thursday. â€śI was lucky really because if that had not happened then I wouldnâ€™t be at Juventus today.â€ť
Bonucci was signed by the Marassi outfit who instantly sold a half-share in him to Bari, a club who gave the defender a chance to catch the eye of former Italy boss Marcello Lippi last term.
â€śMy explosion was a surprise for everybody,â€ť he added. â€śI always believed in my potential, but I didnâ€™t think that I would reach the national team so soon.â€ť
