Bonaventura leaves AC Milan unhappy

Giacomo Bonaventura leaves AC Milan unhappy with his time at the Rossonero.

The midfielder was allowed to come off contract this summer.

“I still had much more to give, but I've seen everything at Milan as a player and a man," he told Sportweek.

“It's disappointing that I was never able to work with the same coach for three or four years, because that does give a sense of consistency to your work. Instead, every new coach seems to be testing you, it's always starting from scratch, and that wastes a lot of time.

“I realised the way I was viewed had changed after my knee injury. I needed surgery and would only return in the final year of my contract.

“A club that has faith in you, that really believes in you, offers a contract renewal the moment a player returns to the field. In my case, that did not happen. There was no clarity.

“Perhaps the Milan Style has changed, but I got the feeling that I was not seen the same way after that injury."
