Fans Think They've Spotted Giorgio Chiellini's Worrying Message To Max Allegri During Juventus Defeat

Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini is believed to have delivered a concerning message to manager Massimiliano Allegri on the touchline during their shock 1-0 defeat to Empoli - and it has caused concern amongst fans.

The Old Lady have struggled in the opening weeks of the season. Following their 3-0 defeat in the Joan Gamper Trophy final against Barcelona earlier this month, the club have since recorded two disappointing results in the league and currently sit in 13th place in Serie A.

They could only pick up a point against Udinese in the opening game of the campaign and on Saturday night, they suffered a surprise defeat in their first home game, as a goal from Leonardo Mancuso in the 21st minute sealed all three points for Empoli.

Things then went from bad to worse when footage of a clearly frustrated Chiellini emerged online.

In the clip below, Allegri can be seen covering his mouth when he spoke to the Italian defender but Chiellini decided to let his feelings known to the cameras. Many believe the Italian centre-back said: "It's not a team"

After the shock defeat in Turin - the first game of the post-Ronaldo era - Juve boss Allegri also blamed a lack of teamwork.

"We started off well but conceded from our first mistake then stopped playing as a team, handing space and the initiative to Empoli," he said.

"We should have played as team, not individually. We needed to fill the box better but we made lots of technical errors because our play became frenetic.

"You have to manage the game and the ball differently and you have to be patient when defending, because if you rush around trying to win back possession you leave gaps for the opposition."
