Some Italy fans has no brain - Bonucci

Bonucci has hit out at Azzurri supporters who jeer players from the national team. Back in 2021, goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was booed on his return to San Siro - and Italy are set to take on England in Milan on Friday.

What Bonucci said;

"Whoever whistles a player of the Italian national team is for me a person without a brain, at that moment the player represents the whole nation," Bonucci told reporters. "Donnarumma was not the first to be booed and he will not be the last. We have to grow up from a cultural point of view."

Donnarumma caused controversy when he left boyhood club AC Milan to join big-spenders Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in 2021, and local fans made their feelings known last year.

Italy fans were also left disappointed by Roberto Mancini's side's failure to qualify for the World Cup in March - just a few months after becoming European champions. Victory over England with their new-look side would help raise spirits.
