Bonucci reveals his sleepless nights because of Didier Drogba

Being asked about the strongest strikers he has played against during his long career with Juventus, the Italy international revealed how he couldn't sleep the night before a game against the Chelsea icon.

Interviewing a group of young Juventus supporters on the club's Twitch channel, Leonardo Bonucci said when he was asked who the strongest striker he has ever faced is:

“I think it was Drogba, I wouldn’t sleep the night before a game against him. The same goes for Atalanta‘s Duvan Zapata, I’ve always been concerned by his physicality. Then Vlahovic when he was playing for Fiorentina.

“As an opponent, I admire Luka Modric, the poetry he transmits by playing football is just sensational.”

Talking about the strikers he played alongside at Juventus, the Italian defender said:

“Aside from Cristiano Ronaldo, Tevez is the teammate who impressed me the most, not only for his mentality.”

About the best game he's ever played, he continued: “

I think the one against Chelsea in the Champions League. I man-marked Romelu Lukaku but I made a mistake that could have been costly.”

Asked about the most precious Serie A title he's won with Juve, he said

: “The first one because nobody believed we could make it. The support from fans was crucial, it was thrilling to see so many fans in the streets to celebrate.”
