Juventus defender Leo Bonucci has been named the Best Defender of the Year for 2021 after at the international Globe Soccer Awards.

The centre-back was instrumental in Italy’s exploits this summer in winning Euro 2020, quietly going about his business alongside different options at the back, proving that age is but a number alongside his elder team-mate Giorgio Chiellini.

Bonucci’s nearest rival for the award was likely his partner-in-crime at Juve, and it would be rude to take anything away from Leo’s abilities and performances.

Has Leo showed any signs of age in recent seasons?
