Franco BaresiFormer defender has lashed out at forward for his certain behaviour in Wednesday’s match against .

The 28-year-old was involved in a controversial foul that saw Bianconeri defender sent off with a red card early on in the second half, which has resulted in accusations of diving and simulation, as there are a number of clips and pictures pointing out his exaggeration during the slight contact.

Baresi posted one of these pictures of Chiellini’s soft foul on his official Twitter page along with a statement condemning the Portuguese international for his actions.

“The greatest players should behave differently,” read the short statement written by the 53-year-old, which was met with much agreement from his followers.

Real Madrid ended up defeating Juventus 2-1, with both of their goals coming from Ronaldo, and will face the reigning champions again in on November 5.
