Davide Fratessi recently told a funny tale of how he 'blocked' his own sister from social media for celebrating Juventus’ recent triumph in the Coppa Italia.

The Inter Milan midfielder enjoyed a stellar league campaign with the Nerazzuri, who claimed their 20th league title at the expense of bitter rivals AC Milan.

However, their cup run in the Coppa Italia ended bitterly, as they lost 2-1 to Bologna in the last 16 of the competition.

The 2023/2024 Coppa Italia final was a clash between Juventus and Atalanta, with the Old Lady winning 1-0 in Massimiliano Allegri’s final game in charge before being sacked days later.

Frattesi’s sister blocked

While speaking to La Repubblica via TMW, Frattesi opened up about how difficult it was to watch one of his family members celebrate Juventus’ triumph.

His sister, Chiara Frattesi, was in a celebratory mood after the cup final since her boyfriend, Weston McKennie, happens to be a Juventus player.

“When I saw my sister celebrate Juve’s Coppa Italia win on the pitch, I blocked her on social media for four days,” the former Sassuolo star hilariously admitted.

On May 16, Chiara was at the Stadio Olimpico to watch the final between Juventus and Atalanta amid rumours she was dating the Old Lady’s American winger.

After the dating rumours were confirmed after photos emerged of the stunning lass alongside McKennie.

McKennie was integral for Juventus last season, making across the campaign, according to Transfermarkt.

His performances for Juventus have made him a potential target for Aston Villa.

What next for McKennie and Frattesi?

It would be interesting to know where Chiara’s loyalty will lie now that McKennie and Fratessi will be on international duty in June, albeit on different continents.

Fratessi will be in action for Italy in the upcoming Euro 2024, while McKennie will play for the USA in the Copa America.

Juventus in Champions League final appearances

Sports Brief also reported on where Juventus ranks in the list of clubs with the most appearances in the Champions League final.

The Old Lady makes the top five, which is topped by Real Madrid.

Los Blancos have impressively reached the final of Europe’s most prestigious club competition a staggering 18 times.
