An enraged Massimiliano Allegri stormed off the pitch as he delivered an X-rated tirade against his Juventus players after 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 are ranked 18th after Sunday’s draw.
Their bottom three position was confirmed after Ante Rebic canceled Alvaro Morata’s opener, and the 54-year-old was furious with the attitude of his players during his post-match interview.

But now a video has surfaced and went viral on social media showing the moment when Allegri rushed off the field immediately after the final whistle and cursed his players by saying, ‘F***’s sake! You play for Juventus!’
It is believed that Allegri was particularly angry with his three substitutes that night: Dejan Kulusevski, Moise Kean and Federico Chiesa.
He focused his anger on the trio after they failed to help the hosts keep their one-goal lead at the Allianz Stadium with their defensive work, leaving Allegri particularly frustrated.
“He came into a difficult moment of the game and I needed him to get the ball to the opponent’s half,” Allegri said when asked about Chiesa.
Allegri urged forward Federico Chiesa to ‘grow up’ after filling in as a substitute
“He needs to grow and become aware of what he can do because we are at Juventus.
However, Allegri’s anger towards the entire team was also palpable, urging “personal issues” to be put aside for the rest of the team.
“I admit I made mistakes in the substitutions,” Allegri added. ‘I was wrong. I should have put in more defensive players and locked up the 1-0 lead. I take responsibility for that.
“If you don’t realize that you have to put aside all personal problems and work as a fullback, even if you’re a striker, then you don’t take these results home with you. All we remember is that we threw away two points.’
Allegri would also be angry with fellow replacements Moise Kean and Dejan Kulusevski
“Fortunately, the referee whistled before the end, otherwise we could have lost it,” Allegri told DAZN.
“I’m pretty angry tonight. The team played well in the first half and only got a long shot to Milan.
“In the end we even risked losing, despite the fact that we were in complete control until the equalizer.
“Unfortunately we lost focus and determination… we have to improve even if the team wants to take a step forward.”
Ante Rebic’s goal meant that for the first time in 60 years, Juventus have not won any of their first four league games of a season.
