Filippo Inzaghi and Massimiliano Allegri clash in heated AC Milan training ground argument

The legendary striker, now youth team coach at the Rossoneri, and the current first-team boss have reportedly been involved in an animated confrontation, according to reports
AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri and former player Filippo Inzaghi have reportedly clashed in a heated exchange at the club's training ground.

Allegri has been under pressure following his side's dismal start to the season and reports have suggested that he could be on his way out of the club shortly.

One man whose name has been linked to his job is former Milan striker, Inzaghi, now currently in charge of the youth team.

According to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport, the dispute was triggered after Inzaghi ignored the head coach during his visit to the training ground on Thursday.

Some strong words were exchanged with the former player allegedly telling Allegri that he is "not taking his job seriously enough". The altercation turned vulgar according to some witnesses as the Milan boss accused Inzaghi of wanting to take his position.

Talking of the incident, Milan sporting director Adriano Galliani was keen to brush the event aside.

"I spoke with both Allegri and Inzaghi and both have downplayed the incident. For me, the episode is as if it never happened," he was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The squabble comes during a difficult period for the Italian giants who, after selling a number of high-profile players over the summer, have been struggling on all fronts so far this season.

After only managing a draw in their opening match in the Champions League on Tuesday night against Anderlecht, Allegri will be hoping to guide his team to a win over Udinese on Sunday in order to ease the pressure on him and his embattled side.
