Juventus defender Nicola Legrottaglie wants to be a mentor to new teammate Leonardo Bonucci.

Bonucci has signed for Juve this week from Bari.

"I would like to stay for another year," said former Italian international Legrottaglie.

"Bonucci? He is already a very strong player, but I will help him to grow even more as a footballer."

He added: "Even if the club signed Philippe Mexes too then that wouldn't bother me."
