Tempers boiled over on the sidelines when Juventus clashed with Inter Milan in the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final last week. Executives from both teams were seen getting involved in heated exchanges throughout the match and Conte was visibly distraught with Juventus chief Andre Agnelli.

Now Juventus veteran Leonardo Bonucci has had his say on the incident. Bonucci Sky Sport Italia (via Football Italia):

“There is little to add, the images are clear. What happened was bad but it’s not for me to judge and say why it happened. We must always be role models, but sometimes it becomes difficult in certain situations
“When you play, sometimes you do not think about the environmental situation. Tension can make you do something different from what you want and episodes like these can happen. This is also amplified by the fact that the stadiums are empty and the microphones record even the sneeze of a player.

“We should emphasize less what happens, I challenge anyone not to have moments of tension in their workplace, whether it’s a football field or an office.
"We are human beings. We try to be role models, but some situations may get out of our control. With a full stadium you wouldn’t notice it, we have to be more careful but it is nothing new.”
