The club’s captain has been embroiled in a bitter feud with sections of the support following his book release, and the Milan playmaker says he shouldn’t have written the tome
Milan playmaker Giacomo Bonaventura has delivered his verdict on the Mauro Icardi saga by saying he would not write a book until he has won some silverware.
How Van Persie’s Man Utd career was ruined by Moyes
While Milan are flying high under Vincenzo Montella, city rivals Inter have been involved in an unwanted controversy surrounding their captain’s autobiography while they struggle for results under Frank de Boer.
Icardi infuriated Inter’s Curva Nord ultras after claiming in his book that he made himself a “hero” among his team-mates by standing up to one of the group’s leaders after a 3-1 defeat to Sassuolo in 2014-15.
Curva Nord declared Icardi to be “finished” as an Inter player and the striker was confronted by banners criticising him during the Cagliari match, where his missed penalty was cheered by sections of the home support.
Icardi was sanctioned by the club on Monday but retained the captaincy, with his agent and wife Wanda Nara saying the player will not be forced into a move.
Bonaventura was asked to comment and suggested he would not take the same approach as Icardi, who remains just 23 and is yet to win a major honour.
He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “If I wrote an autobiography it would be really boring!
“I don’t have many stories to tell. I will win something first and then we can talk.”
