Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini delivered a slamming assessment of the team during their 1-0 loss to Empoli on Saturday.

The defeat was Juventus' first game since Cristiano Ronaldo's departure, with Massimiliano Allegri's side taking just one point from their opening two fixtures, and sit 13th on the Serie A table.

Chiellini and Allegri were on the sidelines discussing the team's performance against Empoli, when the defender shook his head in response to his manager's comments, and said: "It's not a team", according to Football Italia.

After the shock defeat in Turin, 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."
