Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has slammed 'false reports' of a falling out between himself and Paulo Dybala at half time of the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.
Italian publication La Stampa claimed on Tuesday that the pair clashed at the midway point at the Principality Stadium with the scoreline locked at 1-1 at the time.
Juventus would go on to suffer a heavy 4-1 defeat in Cardiff, which has been put down to the unrest in the dressing room, but Bonucci insists that the report is well wide of the mark and he is even prepared to take legal action.
"None of what was written, talked about or reconstructed is true," he posted on his official Facebook page. "With regards to what has been written over the last few days by some media sources regarding supposed rows and verbal clashes that might've involved me and other teammates, I think the time has come to make one thing very clear...
"There was no argument, let alone physical clashes regarding me or anyone else. The interval between the first and second halves of the UCL Final was an interval like many others were, I repeat, nothing happened.
"These are the only words I intend to say with regards to this situation and I hope they will be the last. In case they are not sufficient to clarify the situation and establish the truth, I will be ready to ask my lawyers to defend my good name and honourability."
Bonucci, linked with a big-money move to Premier League champions Chelsea this summer, featured 45 times for Juventus in all competitions last season.
