Juventus' Leonardo Bonucci Makes A Huge Mistake Against AC Milan
Leonardo Bonucci was at fault for Juventus conceding against AC Milan and everyone's making the same joke.
The Italian has been subject to intense criticism following his thoughts on the Moise Kean incident. He said the 19-year-old was partly to blame about the racist abuse he received in a shocking admission.
And the Juventus defender is once again the talk of social media after committing a defensive error in today's Serie A fixture.
He played a sloppy pass to Rodrigo Bentancur. Tiémoué Bakayoko pounced on his mistake before winning a duel over him to set-up the red-hot Krzysztof Piątek who found the back of the net.

Piątek has his goal.

Naturally, his careless defending got people talking:
Bonucci giving a suicide pass, and Milan capitalize. I presume he'll say Bentancur is 50% to blame?

Poetic justice that Bonucci is the one who costs Juve a goal. You couldn't make it up.

I'll think you'll find that was only 50% Bonucci's fault

This wasnt Bonucci's fault. It was 50-50.

Bonucci has since issued a statement seeking to clarify his interview about the racial abuse his teammate suffered.
"After 24 hours I want to clarify my feelings," he said on his official Instagram
"Yesterday I was interviewed right at the end of the game, and my words have been clearly misunderstood, probably because I was too hasty in the way I expressed my thoughts.
"Hours and years wouldn't be enough to talk about this topic. I firmly condemn all forms of racism and discrimination.
"The abuses are not acceptable at all and this must not be misunderstood."
