Reports in Italy claim that Allegri reprimanded Paulo Dybala in front of the entire squad about his attitude and behaviour after he was left on the bench against Parma last weekend.

Allegri has now revealed that Dybala has since apologised for his behaviour at training ahead of Sunday's clash against Sassuolo.

"He apologised, as it was right to do from a clever boy like him, to whom the club has given important responsibility – the number 10 jersey and the captain's armband when [Giorgio] Chiellini is not available," Allegri said, according to FourFourTwo.
 
"He had an attitude that is not appropriate, he understood that. Case closed."
 
Dybala last netted a Serie A goal in November, but Allegri insists the player's position and role has not changed.
 
"His position on the field has not changed, only the characteristics of those who play alongside him have," he said.
 
"The difference is that last year there was [Gonzalo] Higuain and [Mario] Mandzukic; this year there is Ronaldo and Mandzukic.
 
"He touches the same amount of balls, has the same opportunities. I do not tell him to be a full-back.
 
"Sometimes you try to find things that do not exist. I laugh when I read certain things but people like to fill their mouths. I listen and enjoy it.
