Africa-Press – Eritrea. Italian defender Leonardo Bonucci confirmed his retirement from professional football at the age of 37 on Wednesday.

“As a child, I dreamed of this story I would tell, promising myself achievements to embrace against the biggest, celebrating, having faith through difficulties with courage,” Bonucci said in an emotional video posted on X.

“A father, a team-mate, a husband, a player. Beyond. Beyond history today, I am me,” he added.

Bonucci has spent most of his time at Juventus, where he made 502 appearances and scored 37 goals for the Turin club.
