The Piedmontese captain then continued: “Life choices must certainly be accepted, but if he hadn’t been on vacation alone the previous month, but we had gone on vacation together like the other years, in my opinion he would not have gone to Milan, I ‘I’m convinced of it“.

He then concluded: “I would have made him open his point of view a little more, I would have made him understand that he was making a mistake, that Milan, with all due respect for them, was not Real Madrid or Milan. today either, he was going to regress, he realized the mistake very quickly. Of course, I don’t decide for Leo, I don’t decide anything even in my house“he concluded ironically.
