Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon reportedly fumed at his teammates after the 1-0 defeat to Napoli at the weekend.
The Bianconeri lost 1-0 after Kalidou Koulibaly’s late header, closing the gap at the top of the table to just one point.
Juve have the tougher run-in, as they still have to go to Inter and Roma, so they can no longer afford to make any mistakes.
According to all of Italy’s major sports newspapers, Buffon had some harsh words for his teammates in the dressing room, particularly Medhi Benatia.
The Moroccan centre-back lost Koulibaly for the winning goal, and was reminded of his responsibilities by his captain in no uncertain terms.
It’s not thought this has caused any lasting problems in dressing room, as Buffon occasionally takes it upon himself to give the team a jolt and this is just the latest example.
