Leonardo Bonucci clashed with a member of Inter Milan’s staff on the touchline after Juventus’s defeat in the Supercoppa Italiana in extra time.
Inter clinched the cup victory thanks to Alexis Sanchez’s last-gasp goal in the 120th minute of the final clash, after a Weston McKennie header and Lautaro Martinez penalty in the first half.
Centre back Bonucci appeared to take his frustration at the defeat on the Inter staff as he was seen shoving the rival side’s secretary Cristiano Mozzillo near the benches at San Siro, according to a report via Football Italia.

The Italian veteran had been on the sidelines waiting to come on as a late substitute with the sole purpose of taking a spotkick should the clash go to a penalty shootout.
The Juventus staff were reportedly urging their players to give away a free kick so the 34-year-old could be introduced.
But the Bianconeri’s plan quickly fell apart as Sanchez pounced on an error from Alex Sandro to seal a 2-1 win for Inter.
Seeing the Inter staff celebrate right beside him, Bonucci turned and appeared to shove Mozzillo in frustration.
