La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Inter directors are annoyed by Massimiliano Allegri’s claims about the Serie A title race as the Juventus boss said the Nerazzurri have been building a team to win the Scudetto for many years.
Inter and Juventus are set to meet at the Allianz Stadium in Turin on November 26, but the clash seems to have already started off the pitch.
Juventus beat Fiorentina 1-0 at the Stadio Franchi on Sunday, moving two points below their harshest rivals, the current Serie A leaders.
Nevertheless, Allegri insisted that Juventus’ main target this season is to finish in the top four.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Allegri’s claims irritated Inter directors because the Nerazzurri had to deal with financial restrictions over the last few seasons being forced to sign many free agents and sell some of their best players to balance the books.
The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Achraf Hakimi, André Onana and Robin Gosens are only some of those who had to leave the Stadio Meazza from 2021 for financial reasons.
Juventus, on the other hand, made some big-money signings in the same period, welcoming the likes of Dusan Vlahovic, Gleison Bremer, Manuel Locatelli and Moise Kean.
