High tension at Juve: Agnelli confronted Pirlo

La Stampa reveals the high tension in the Juventus dressing room and a confrontation between patron Andrea Agnelli and coach Andrea Pirlo after the 1-0 defeat to Benevento.

The Turin based newspaper reveals the ‘anger and bitterness’ exploded after the final whistle at the Allianz Stadium, as Juventus suffered a setback in the Scudetto battle.

The Bianconeri sit 10 points behind Inter in the League after Filippo Inzaghi’s left with all the spoils on Sunday.

Tuttosport claims Pirlo will be assessed over the remaining games and can’t afford a similar setback during the run-in, whilst the fans reacted to the poor performance and hit out at the coach and the Juventus management.

La Stampa then reports of shouting and insults coming from the Juventus dressing room after the match, confirming the high level of tension at the Old Lady.

In addition, there was also a confrontation between patron Agnelli and coach Pirlo. Juventus, who are through to the Final of the Coppa Italia, are already eliminated from the Champions League and their Scudetto hopes are in tatters after Adolfo Gaich gave the Streghe a memorable win in Turin.
