Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri has taken a dim view of recent comments made by Giorgio Chiellini.
The Italian Under-21 defender admitted he was worried about the situation at the club and was considering his future.
Ranieri has not reacted well and has told Chiellini he has caused major disruption.
"With his words Chiellini has caused damaged within the group," said Ranieri.
"I like people with big will, but it must remain in place.
"I understand what he said, but certain things must remain in the dressing room."
One player who has not disappointed Ranieri is Alessandro Del Piero - who is set to sign a new deal at the club.
"I'm not worried and I'm not angry that the club has given priority to other situations," Del Piero said.
"I don't think I'm going to go anywhere. I want to stay in Turin.
"Any difficulties with negotiations should be easily overcome given the words of respect from Claudio Ranieri and the board."
Juventus have also confirmed the departure of midfielder Alessio Tacchinardi.
The Italian international has spent the last two seasons on loan at Spanish side Villarreal, but he will not be returning to Turin after cancelling his contract by mutual consent.
Finally, Crvena Zvezda midfielder Segundo Castillo has claimed that he has agreed a deal with Juve.
The Ecuador international is reportedly set to sign a four-year deal with the Old Lady.
"I will be playing for Juventus next season," he is quoted by the Serbian press.
"Next Wednesday I will be signing a four-year deal with the Bianconeri."
