Massimiliano Allegri was so enraged after Juventus’ 1-1 draw with Milan that he stormed off the field, off the pitch. Cursing and yelling at his players the whole time, Allegri stormed off during the Juventus-Milan football match which ended 1-1.
The Old Lady drew with the Rossoneri last night in the Italian top flight, Serie A.
This means they’re without a win in the first four Serie A games for the first time in 60 years.
And Allegri harboured dissatisfaction over his players’ demeanour and expressed his displeasure both on the field and in post-match interviews.
Allegri Stormed Off during the Juventus-Milan Football Match
A video that is becoming viral on social media, shows Juventus head coach Max Allegri in all his fury.
It shows the moment Allegri stormed off the pitch swearing in Italian, saying: “They even want to play for Juventus.”
And this jibe is clearly aimed at his own Juve players.
Then, in his post-match press conference, Allegri expressed much of the same frustration with his own men. After the match, he urged his players to recognize that the Juventus jersey is “heavier” than those of other clubs.
And in an interview with DAZN, he addressed Juventus’ younger players, including Federico Chiesa. Allegri emphasized the need for these young footballers to understand what it means to play for the Bianconeri.
Allegri Also Admits to His Own Mistakes in Juventus-Milan
Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri also commented, about the match itself, as per Football Italia:
“Despite a good first half, when we created chances and allowed Milan just one opportunity, we even risked defeat at the end of a game that had been under total control.
“Unfortunately, we lost that concentration, determination and focus. Just look at the corner where we conceded the goal. It’s not possible to give this game away after being in control. Evidently, we need to make progress.
“I am admitting a mistake on substitutions, I got it wrong. I should’ve put more defensive players on and put the 1-0 lead under lock and key, so I take responsibility for that.
“It was important to get a positive result and we did. A defeat would’ve not definitively left us behind Milan, but a big advantage, now it is easier to bridge.
“There were some positives – the first half, but what makes me angry are the final 15 minutes. We should’ve suffered more, should’ve been ready to fight. At those moments, you can’t look at being aesthetically beautiful, you just take the result home, even if it’s ugly.
“Fortunately, the referee blew the final whistle, because we frankly risked defeat. If you don’t realize that you must put all personal issues aside, work as a full-back even if you’re a striker, then you won’t bring these results home.”
