thumbnail Hello,

The former international defender has criticized the pair for allegedly clashing when the Rossoneri boss went to visit the club's youth camp last week

Alessandro Nesta has hit out at former teammate Filippo Inzaghi and AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, accusing them both of acting like children after seeing reports of a recent bust-up at the team's training grounds.

Allegri reportedly turned up at the Vismara Centre, which is where the club’s youth teams play, to watch training. Inzaghi, the current manager of Milan’s youth team, allegedly accused his former boss of not taking his job seriously, which resulted in a heated argument between the two.

The Montreal Impact defender believes that attempts to cover up any rift are failing, and he thinks the two have acted in a childish manner.

"Their argument? It's the behavior of children," the 36-year-old told reporters. "If it went as I read, it was childish from both of them."

Nesta's comments are surprising considering that just last week, he came to the defense of the under-pressure coach.

"As for Allegri, the criticism is unfair. I think fans are smart enough to realize that the team is new and needs time to gel, but also selling two key players like Ibra and Silva will hurt the team," he told Goal.com's Alex Labidou.

The center back appeared less optimistic when discussing the Rossoneri's current struggles that have seen them manage just one win in their first five games.

"It is not the first time the team has been in trouble, but in the past we were able to finish the season well. Allegri is being doubted, but I do not understand who could be the alternative."

Finally, Nesta was full of praise for current Roma boss Zdenek Zeman: "He is a great coach, every player should expect to be coached by him because he's the best to teach football."
