    The Old Lady defeated Lazio 1-0, but the Juve boss, Allegri wasn’t best pleased with the result as footage of the final minutes of the match revealed his furious displeasure.

    As the Old Lady continued with the warmup following their 1-0 lead, coach Allegri was growing increasingly impatient and boiling up with Argentine forward Angel Di Maria.

    The 55-year-old Italian football manager was captured raging at the edge of the touchline after the former Manchester United winger boomed a shot wide in the closing stages of the match.

    Angel Di Maria had the ball right in a delicate position inside the final third, but he waited too long to pick up his pass and was dispossessed as a result.

    Following the missed opportunity caused by the Argentine’s carelessness, Juve manager, Max Allegri got extremely enraged and threw his arms up in the air while screaming out of anger.

    As the 34-year-old 2022 World Cup hero’s goal opportunity rolled past the far post, a video clip posted on social media reveals the Juventus manager turning his back towards his bench, flagging his arms, and exhibiting a swelling annoyance.

    The 55-year-old Italian boss then frowns and lets out a scream and waves his arms in frustration.

    His scream was heard as he continues to march around his restricted area, flapping his arms in resentment.

    The former AC Milan manager, Allegri storms towards the tunnel at the Allianz Stadium with his expression telling he’s seen enough flaws in his team’s performance.

    After the 1-0 victory, the Italian manager revealed he had lost his cool over Angel Di Maria’s miss.

    He told the media: “In those moments, you must understand the game and the ball must be handled differently.”

    The former AC Milan manager was pleased after all, as he praised his sides following their victory in the Copa Italia fierce clash with Lazio.

    He added: “Lazio is not an easy side to play against. If you let them run at you, they’re really good. We slowed them down and did well to cut out the passing lanes.

    “Then when Milinkovic-Savic came on we shut off the supply line for crosses too. I’m happy with the way we performed.”

    Meanwhile, it’s been a bad time for the Turin outfit as Juventus are enduring a difficult season, sitting 13th in Serie A and also dropping down into the Europa League after a horrible Champions League group stage.

    The Old Lady was also slammed with a 15-point deduction following an investigation into their past transfer transactions.

    Juventus now occupy the 13th spot in Serie A following the 15 points deduction they were handed in January after they were punished for financial irregularities.

    And it was on this investigation that the club’s entire board resigned last year in November.
