Juventus boss Max Allegri allegedly communicated his departure from the club to the squad in three words.
Sport Mediaset reports how Allegri began by summoning Juve’s players, staff, physios, doctors and kit-men in the gym at 10:30 BST on Friday.
The broadcaster explains he first said, ‘Sunday will be Barzagli’s last match,’ referring to the defender’s impending retirement.
There would have been no rush to train due to it ‘pouring down’ outside.
It is claimed the Coach then muttered, ‘and mine too.’
Mediaset adds someone heard Cristiano Ronaldo reply, ‘we’ll play for him on Sunday,’ with the Bianconeri due to host Atalanta.
The match is a celebratory occasion for the Old Lady as they will be parading their eighth successive Scudetto.
