|Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi could be in hot water after being accused calling Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic a "piece of s*** gypsy" during a Serie A match on Sunday.
Italian outlet Gazzetta World allege that the Italian international was caught mouthing the insult towards Mandzukic by TV cameras.
The battle between Roma skipper De Rossi and Croatian international Manduzkic was a running theme during a bad-tempered clash in Turin.
Roma manager Luciano Spaletti did not deny what De Rossi is alleged to have said and instead advised the midfielder to cover his mouth when making comments during future matches.
"He [De Rossi] didn't put his hand up to his mouth, but I will tell him to do that next time," Spalletti said.
"In difficult moments like that, certain manners can go amiss. But Mandzukic was taking the p*** out of all the [Roma] players during the game."
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri was keen to play down the incident, which has caused a storm in Italy.
"I don't know what De Rossi said to Mandzukic and I don't know what Mandzukic said to De Rossi, but players regularly trade comments with each other during games," Allegri said.
