Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri makes a new snide remark when discussing Inter Milan, describing them as “sensitive”.

The Livorno native caused controversy last week by comparing the scene on top of the Serie A table to a chase between thieves and cops.

The Nerazzurri didn’t appreciate the metaphor given they were on top of the table at the time.

Nevertheless, Allegri insisted that he was only referring to a children’s game and never intended to offend anyone.

But despite his justification, his words still stirred the pot, causing a major debacle in the Italian press and among the fans on social media.

Allegri felt that the reaction was exaggerated, prompting him to label the Nerazzurri as “sensitive”, in a fresh dig aimed at his Scudetto rivals, this time using a tennis metaphor.

During Allegri’s pre-match press conference on Friday, a journalist asked the Juventus coach if his team resembles the iconic Novak Djokovic or Italian rising star Jannik Sinner.

“I congratulate Sinner who played an extraordinary match against a sacred monster like Djokovic,” said the 56-year-old while addressing the media ahead of Saturday’s clash against Empoli via FcInter1908.

“The only thing I can say is that we have a younger squad. Therefore, we would be Sinner and they [Inter] would be Djokovic.

“But I don’t know. I don’t want them to take it the wrong way. They’re sensitive.”

Allegri also urged his players to maintain their composure as the decisive months of the campaign approach.

“That’s how the calendar is. Sometimes we play first, sometimes we play after them. That’s part of the beauty.

“You have to score a certain number of points to be at the top of the table at the end of the season. We must only think about ourselves.

“We have to be consistent and maintain a certain balance. Also, we must have the mental strength. In the second part of the season, scoring points becomes much more difficult.
