Inter striker Christian Vieri has hit out at reports of an argument between himself and goalkeeper Gigi Buffon.
"This is the last time that I will speak with you," he said.
"You simply invent stories and massacre us from morning until night. I can look at myself in the mirror when I wake up but you lot can’t as your conscience isn’t clear.
"You can judge my performances on the pitch because quite frankly I don’t care about your opinions.
"You have a right to do that but you can’t offend a person. I will not accept this. No one can evaluate me as a man because I am more of a man than all of you put together.
"We can’t go on like this. We’ve always shown you respect but you haven’t returned that."
Buffon also hit out at the report which appeared in the Messaggero newspaper: "I would like to know how these stories appear. Perhaps there is a project in place to try to destabilise the squad."
