Juventus coach Max Allegri said he’s ‘human’ when defending his behaviour after the 1-1 draw with Milan on Sunday. ‘I expect seriousness from those who enter’.

The Old Lady coach stormed off the pitch swearing and yelling at his players, as he was unhappy with their attitude and didn’t manage to hide his disappointment.

Furious Allegri storms off the pitch: ‘They want to play at Juventus…’

During the press conference ahead of the fifth Serie A game of the season against Spezia on Wednesday, the coach explained his reaction.

“Talking about the past doesn’t make sense,” Allegri said. “It’s been seven years, and two since I last was at Juventus. This is a different team from the one I had.

“I’m human too and I have outbursts too. Since they have been playing two years in a row, without interruptions, those who go on the bench must be decisive in their approach.

“We can’t think of playing in 10, it’s always the case: before we had 14, now it’s 16. I demand respect from those who start and those on the bench and vice versa.

“It’s a sense of respect and responsibility.”

Allegri: ‘There will be changes against Spezia’

The Bianconeri are without a win in the opening four Serie A games of the season for the first time in 60 years.

Juventus collected draws against Udinese and Milan and lost to Empoli and Napoli.

During his pre-match press conference, Allegri said Federico Chiesa and Matthijs de Ligt will start against the Aquilotti, while Giorgio Chiellini will remain in Turin with fever.

The Serie A giants will host Sampdoria at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday after their away clash with Spezia. They’ll play their second Champions League group stage game against Chelsea on Wednesday, September 29.
