AC Milan captain Bonucci: I didn't want to hurt Rosi

AC Milan captain Leonardo Bonucci insists he didn't deliberately aim an elbow at Genoa midfielde Aleandro Rosi.

Bonucci was sent off on Sunday for the 0-0 draw.

"I'm sorry for what happened," Bonucci told SportMediaset from The Best FIFA Awards in London.

"I didn't want to hurt Rosi, I was trying to shake off his marking and we all saw what happened. It wasn't a deliberate elbow, I apologised to him at the end of the game and I was very sorry for what happened.

"Beyond that we're in an era of technology and I accept the verdict, a still image can cause those assessments.

"I'm disappointed to skip the game with Juventus, but fate wrote it that way. I'll use these two matches to work and return to the pitch in the best form and condition."
