The emotional greeting of Denis Tonucci at Bari. He will play for the Apulian rivals of Foggia

January, period of transfer market and, as in summer, for footballers often becomes a complicated moment.
Before footballers are human and therefore, as such, they become attached, to the people around them, to the comrades, to the city and to the fans they play for, and then comes a moment to which all this must be said goodbye, because the transfers market have now entered the normality of the dynamics of this wonderful sport.
The movements can hurt: sometimes the player himself, but more than anything else to the fans who lose their favorites, sold by the company of their team to other clubs, sometimes even to bitter rivals.
It’s the story of the moment, that of Denis Tonucci. After almost three years, 97 appearances and 2 goals as the defender and the backbone of Bari from this session of the market will play the hated rivals of Foggia.

A real stab at the heart of Bari fans.

However, here comes the magic of football, a sport that goes beyond the material and practical aspect of a circumstance. Through a simple but profound message, Denis has in fact made the people of Bari understand that his is not a betrayal but simply a natural change in his professional career. Underlining the commitment that has always put in honoring the shirt of Bari, Denis has received thousands of admiration and good wishes from his now ex-fans, although now go to play where the people of Bari would never have wanted:

“Under the east, you will always be welcome … thanks for everything Denis !!!! Who knit has honored, will never be forgotten !!! “” Denis ….. bari does not forget who knitted the sweat and has defended with his teeth ….. good luck and good work ” “Too bad you go but you’ll stay in the heart of Bari! Goodbye wrestler! “” Thank you warrior! “” You deserve all the best! You’re a great one! Hello warrior “” Thanks Denis, you put the man in front of the player! Your unique grit we will miss, as you are there are very few now .. Hello “” Thank you for everything, you have always fought and honored our shirt! We will miss you good luck for all warrior … Thanks for everything! ”

And these are just some of the many fans of Bari who wanted to greet with affection what was their darling, a player who never stopped fighting for the team of their faith, their city and that today will be one of their “Rivals” who will meet next April 21st in the sentimental derby at the Zaccheria of Foggia.
This is the greeting and thanksgiving that Denis Tonucci wanted to do to the Bari fans on his Instagram profile.

@denis.tonucci “Eccoci qua dopo quasi 3 anni di battaglie,sorrisi,pianti e rimpianti,gioie e dolori è arrivato uno di quei momenti che purtroppo nel calcio prima o poi arriva.. quando ti leghi ad una città che ti ha accolto come un figlio e a delle persone che ti hanno trattato come un fratello dire “ciao” è veramente difficile e fa male, si tanto, fa male al cuore ma la vita va comunque avanti.. ad ogni modo voglio ringraziare davvero tutti dal primo all’ultimo, tutte le persone che ho conosciuto a livello lavorativo e quelle che ho conosciuto fuori dal campo.. grazie veramente di cuore per tutto perché ognuno mi ha insegnato e lasciato qualcosa che porterò per sempre dentro me… custodirò gelosamente per sempre questa storia chiamata BARI… grazie ancora tantissimo..! ora basta con i sentimentalismi, ora mi aspettano tante altre battaglie, ora mi aspetta una nuova avventura, bella, bellissima, sicuramente difficile ma stimolante e da protagonista.. arrivare in un club che ha insistito tanto per averti è sempre qualcosa di stupendo per un giocatore e così è stato per me ora.. Grazie ancora.. Vi porterò sempre e per sempre nel mio cuore.. #bari

In bocca al lupo Denis!
