Bonucci apologises for dive

Rome: Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has apologised for his embarrassing dive following his side win 1-0 at Palermo.

Bonucci was warned by the referee when he fell to the ground after being challenged by goalkeeper Samir Ujkani minutes before the end of the game Sunday, reports Xinhua.

"I was supposed to shoot, but then I got different ideas clogged in my head," he wrote on Twitter.

"I deserved that yellow card and set a bad example. That`ll teach me. As for the rest, it was a great victory," he said.
