The “rebel” Juventus coach threatens a journalist: I know where to find you and I will cut off your ears sports

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri could not control his nerves yesterday during the Italian Cup final, especially towards the refereeing, and he unleashed his anger on a journalist despite his team’s victory.

Allegri saved his face by winning the Italian Cup after beating Atalanta 1-0, after losing the league title to Inter Milan.

But this coronation will not be enough for Allegri to continue his career with Juventus, in light of the circulating news about the club’s intention to replace him with a new coach.

Allegri protested excessively against the referees’ decisions, which led to his expulsion, but he continued his aggressive behavior before the final whistle of the match, as he revolted against the club’s sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, and appeared to expel him from the field.

Then Allegri got out of control on his way to the press conference room, where he insulted and threatened Guido Faciago, director of the Italian newspaper Tuttosport.

“He shouted at me, saying, ‘Director, write the truth in your newspaper, not what the club tells you,'” Guido said.

He added, “He grabbed me, pushed me, and shouted at me, saying: I will find you and cut off both of your ears. You will find me waiting for you and I will punch your dirty face.”

Juventus Public Relations Director Gabriella Ravizzotti, as well as an employee in the Italian League, were forced to intervene to remove Allegri and convince him to enter the press conference hall.

Allegri suspended

The Italian Federation announced that Allegri, Juventus coach, was suspended for two matches after being sent off in the Italian Cup final on Thursday.

The Federation’s Disciplinary Committee justified its decision by referring in particular to “his aggressive behavior toward the fourth assistant referee,” in addition to “his return to the field after being expelled for disrespectful behavior toward the referees.”

The 56-year-old coach sarcastically clapped in the face of the main referee after he was sent off in the fifth minute of stoppage time at the end of the match, then approached the fourth official in a threatening manner.

The penalty will, of course, be imposed on him in the next edition of the competition.

Local media have been talking for weeks about the approaching dismissal of Allegri, whose contract extends until 2025, and that Bologna coach Thiago Motta is about to succeed him.

Juventus has declined significantly in terms of results in the recent period, as it tied in 5 consecutive league matches, and lost the second leg of the cup semi-final to Lazio 1-2, but qualified by benefiting from its 2-0 victory in the first leg.

The “Old Lady” team, which secured its qualification to the Champions League, is in fourth place with 67 points, on goal difference from third-placed Bologna, with whom it will play next Monday in the penultimate 37th round.
