A livid Massimiliano Allegri stormed off the pitch while delivering an X-rated rant directed towards his Juventus players following their 1-1 draw at home to AC Milan.
The Serie A giants are without a win in their first four league games of a season for the first time in 60 years and sit 18th in the table after Sunday’s draw.
Their position in the bottom three was confirmed after Ante Rebic cancelled out Alvaro Morata’s opener, and the 54-year-old was furious with the attitude of his players during his post-match interview.

Allegri was furious after seeing his side drop points against AC Milan on home soil
But now a video has emerged and gone viral on social media which shows the moment Allegri hurried off the pitch immediately after the final whistle and swearing at his players by saying: ‘F***’s sake! You are playing for Juventus!’
Allegri is believed to have been particularly angry with his three substitutes on the night: Dejan Kulusevski, Moise Kean and Federico Chiesa.
He concentrated his anger on the trio after they failed to help the hosts preserve their single-goal lead at the Allianz Stadium with their defensive work, leaving Allegri particularly frustrated.
‘He entered in a difficult moment of the game, and I needed him to bring the ball to the opponent’s half,’ Allegri said when asked about Chiesa.
Allegri insisted forward Federico Chiesa ‘must grow’ after coming on as a substitute
‘He must grow and become aware of what he can do, because we are at Juventus.
Allegri’s fury towards the whole team however was also palpable, insisting that ‘personal issues’ have to be put aside for the rest of the team.
‘I will admit that I made mistakes on the substitutions,’ Allegri added. ‘I got it wrong. I should have put more defensive players on and put the 1-0 lead under lock and key. I take responsibility for that.
‘If you don’t realise 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. All we’ll remember is that we threw away two points.’
Allegri was also said to be angry with fellow replacements Moise Kean and Dejan Kulusevski
‘Luckily the referee whistled for the end otherwise we could have lost it,’ Allegri told DAZN.
‘Tonight I’m quite angry. The team played well in the first half, only conceding a long shot to Milan.
‘In the end, we even risked losing despite the fact that until they equalised we were in total control.
‘Unfortunately we lost attention and determination… we have to improve even if the team are to take a step forward.’
Ante Rebic’s goal meant Juventus are without a win in any of their first four league games of a season for the first time in 60 years
