´I was not involved in active play´ – Bonucci adamant Juventus´ ruled-out winner should have stood

Leonardo Bonucci has insisted Arkadiusz Milik’s header against Salernitana should have stood as he was “not involved in active play”.

Sunday’s Serie A clash at the Allianz Stadium saw the hosts fight back from two goals behind and almost take all three points, with Milik scoring in added time.

Further drama would follow as Milik would be shown a second yellow card for taking his top off in celebration, while the goal was controversially ruled out by a VAR check.

Antonio Candreva’s position looked to have played Milik onside but Bonucci believes that is irrelevant as he did not interfere with play.

“The explanation was that I was involved in active play, but Sepe would have never caught that, my position didn’t interfere with his potential save,” he told DAZN.

“That’s what the rule says. And then, there is the doubt that Antonio Candreva keeps everyone onside.

“I am less than a metre behind the goal area, Candreva seems to be above. If you see the colour of the turf, Candreva could keep me onside.

“I hope they [referees] considered his position, but I guess we’ll never know it. Regardless of that, I was not involved in active play and the Salernitana defender even took my shirt off.”

Juventus now turn their attention towards the Champions League fixture against Benfica, then travelling to Monza in the final Serie A match before the international break.
