Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri guided his team into winning the Coppa Italia title Sunday, however the Italian nearly clashed with a journalist following the game. Allegri got frustrated at the officials at the conclusion of the tie, which had been settled by a first-half Dusan Vlahovic goal, and he got sent off because of the referee, which enraged him even more, and he left the game promptly, taking his coat off, and a video showed that he additionally appeared angry at numerous others while walking down the tunnel.

According to La Repubblica, Allegri and Juve sporting director Cristiano Guintoli had an apparent feud, which Allegri rejected. Allegri was then involved in a fight with journalists, which threatened to turn violent. The director of the Italian newspaper spoke after the incident as he said, “After the game, Allegri told me: you’re a sh**y director! Write the truth in your newspaper, not what the club tells you. Look, I know where to come and get you. I know where to wait for you”. I'll come and rip off both your ears. I'll come and hit you in the face. Write the truth in your newspaper.”

Then he almost came to pieces with a certain journalist. When asked about the incident during the post-game press conference, the Italian chose to divert the question and focus on the club's victory.

“The club will make its evaluations.” : Massimiliano Allegri

Allegri, in the meantime, became the first manager to win the Coppa Italia five times, succeeding Sven-Goran Eriksson and Roberto Mancini, who had won it four times each.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri spoke to the media after the team lifted the Coppa Italia last night. He said, "Very happy for the boys, they brought joy to the club, to the fans and to me. Winning is never easy, but it is in our DNA. If I am no longer the Juventus coach next year, I will leave a strong team. The club will make its evaluations."
