Giacomo Bonaventura was emotional at the end of last night’s game as his contract is not expected to be renewed.
Milan played yesterday evening their final match of the season, but for some players it was their last time in Red and Black.
One of these players is Jack Bonaventura. The 30-year-old midfielder has an expiring contract and is believed to be part of the plans of Elliott for next season.
Bonaventura has been at Milan since 2014, and was easily one of the best – if not the best – player of il Diavolo during a very difficult period in the club’s history. With 35 goals in 184 appearances, Jack’s raw talent, discipline and flexibility have always been added values for any coach he’s had to work with.
Against Cagliari last night, Bonaventura came off the bench in the 38′ minute, replacing the injured Rafael Leão. After completing the game, in which he also assisted the 3-0 goal, Giacomo stayed on the pitch for a bit longer – after everyone had left; he got on the ground and began crying.
His tears continued as he left the pitch of San Siro, most likely for the final time as a Milan player.
