Benatia Lifts Lid On Juve Exit

Benatia Lifts Lid On Juve Exit

Former Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia has explained why he decided to leave Turin and move to Qatar in the January transfer window.

Benatia the 31-year-old was in his third season with the Old Lady when opting to switch to Al-Duhail SC in mid-winter, and he left after making 60 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A giants.

The Morocco international defender has now opened up about his Juve exit and feels that uncertainty over his starting position meant he had little choice. “When I went to Dubai on holiday in December, I decided not to want to stay at Juve.

I was not happy and I talked with my family. It made me feel sick,” he told Sky Italia. “I wanted to give my contribution on the field in a team that I was very good in.

When Bonucci came back, Allegri told me he wanted to focus on me, but things changed quickly. “I’m not angry with the coach. The last game I played was the one against Milan. I had a good game, but the next one I was out again.” Benatia concluded.
