Juventus Manager Walks Out Of Sky Sport Italia Interview After Furious Row

Juventus Manager Walks Out Of Sky Sport Italia Interview After Furious Row

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri walked out of an interview with Sky Sport Italia on Saturday evening following a 1-1 draw between his side and Inter Milan.

In studio for Sky was former Inter and Italy defender Daniele Adani. The 44-year-old has been an outspoken critic regarding the approach of Italian coaches in Europe.

Juventus this season exited the Champions League at the quarter-final stage following defeat to Ajax.

"Against Ajax, we suffered with their counter-attacks, not their style of football, and that made it look as if they had an extraordinary game, whereas they were better in Amsterdam," said Allegri (as translated by Football Italia).

The same goes for tonight, it’s natural that when you misplace a lot of passes, you run risks.

Sometimes you need to improvise and the idea you had in July has to change completely. There is a difference between playing well and winning, but it’s not as small as it seems.

Juventus were recently crowned Serie A champions for the eighth consecutive season. Allegri has been in charge for five of those campaigns. He was also manager of AC Milan when they won the 2010/11 title.

"In Italy, everyone has become a theorist of football and that is a real problem, like you reading your books," said Allegri.

"Now you shut up and I’ll talk, you don’t know anything about football.

"You just sit there behind the desk, you read your books, but you don’t know anything about the practicality of the sport. I’ve won six Scudetti."
