Tempers heated in the Juventus during the match against Genoa, on the date 16 of the A series. Coach Massimiliano Allegri decided to take Álvaro Morata out of the match, but the forward did not take the situation in the best way and the two became intertwined in a tense discussion on the edge of the field.
Everything happened in the 72nd minute, when ‘Vecchia signora’ won 1-0 with a goal from Juan Guillermo Cuadrado. The intention of the technical command of the Turin club was to refresh the offensive zone, which is why they decided to send Moise Kean to the field of play, to take advantage of the fatigue of the rival defense.
Álvaro Morata looked at the board and was already showing his discomfort at being replaced, despite the applause he received from the stands of the Allianz Stadium. The coach Massimiliano Allegri realized what was happening with the Spanish footballer and decided to speak to him, although there was not much tranquility in the conversation they had.
The notoriously angry coach tried to explain the reason for his decision and the forward responded aggressively, before approaching the substitute bench. The Juventus members only observed the scene with surprise, which did not have major consequences.
Finally, the ‘Vecchia signora’ secured the victory with a goal from Paulo Dybala and they managed to climb to fifth position, with a total of 27 points, 11 behind the leader AC Milan. For its part, Genoa is still complicated and is in box N ° 18, in the relegation zone, with only 10 units, two behind Spezia, who is the last saved.
