A furious Massimiliano Allegri stormed off the pitch in an explicit rage after watching his side fall to a 1-1 draw with AC Milan on Sunday.

Allegri returned to the club in the summer but is still waiting for his first Serie A victory. In four games, Juve have picked up two draws and two defeats and currently sit 19th in the league table, ahead of only minnows Salernitana.

Against Milan, Allegri's side took the lead through Alvaro Morata after just four minutes but they were unable to hold on. They were comprehensively outplayed by the visitors, who bagged a deserved equaliser through Ante Rebic midway through the second half.

Allegri could not believe it, and after the game, he was seen storming off the pitch screaming: "Holy s**t, and they want to play for Juventus!"

According to Corriere dello Sport, a large part of Allegri's frustration was directed towards substitutes Moise Kean, Federico Chiesa and Dejan Kulusevski, but no player was safe from the verbal barrage that followed in the dressing room.

"I made the wrong changes because I had to maybe put more defensive people. At that point, the game was in the safe and I was wrong," Allegri said (via La Gazzetta dello Sport).

"[Chiesa] entered at a difficult moment in the match and I needed him to bring the ball to the opponent's half. He must grow and become aware of what he can do because we are at Juventus.

"We need to understand every moment of the match. Every ball becomes heavy, both when you have it at your feet and especially when you don't have the ball. If you don't understand the importance of the result, if you can't put your personal stuff aside and make yourself available for the team, at the cost of... even if I'm a striker, I'd play at full-back - you won't win any matches."

Juventus will look to pick up their first win of the season on Wednesday, when they face Thiago Motta's Spezia Calcio.
