Leonardo Bonucci gives AC Milan victory over Crotone
AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci scored his first goal for the club in a 1-0 win over Crotone — although the Italy international knew little about it.
Milan broke the deadlock nine minutes into the second half when Crotone goalkeeper Alex Cordaz flapped at a corner, sending it onto Bonucci’s back and the ball rebounded into the back of the net.
Bonucci joined Milan from Juventus in the offseason for a fee of more than €40 million.
Franck Kessie thought he had doubled Milan’s lead but it was ruled out on video review as he had fouled Rolando Mandragora.
Milan had also hit the woodwork in the first half as Cordaz fingertipped Suso’s effort onto the post.
