Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri had an angry outburst at the directors of Inter Milan in the wake of the Coppa Italia defeat at San Siro last night.
As revealed by Gazzetta dello Sport, Allegri lost his cool on his way to the dressing room after the game, making contemptuous remarks at Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta and sporting director Dario Baccin.
The Italian manager also told Inter officials their team would finish sixth in Serie A this season.
The rant continued in Juve’s dressing room, where Allegri blasted his own players for a disappointing performance.
He urged them to finish above Inter in Serie A and prevent them from qualifying for the Champions League.
The first leg at Allianz Stadium also descended into chaos after a brawl erupted in the wake of racism chants levelled at Romelu Lukaku by Juve fans.
Allegri also took a cheeky dig at Napoli after last week’s defeat, saying they have won just one Scudetto – alluding to the numerous Serie A titles he has won in his career.
Juve’s chances of winning a trophy are over with last night’s Coppa Italia semi-final defeat.
They will be aiming to finish on a high note this season, but their momentum has taken a hit following back-to-back defeats.
Juventus are third in the table after their 15-point deduction was overturned. They are just three points ahead of AC Milan.
The Bianconeri are walking a tightrope, and any further setbacks could put their top-four hopes in danger.
Juve will face Bologna in an away fixture this weekend.
