Cagliari president Massimo Cellino has attacked Juventus for being arrogant and has also accused the Turin giants of lacking respect for others.
The Bianconeri have attracted criticism from sections of the media for their perceived negative attitude towards referees when results have not gone in their favour.
Their complaints have not gone down well with the Sardinian outfit's patron, who is heavily critical of Juve's stance, and insists the standard of match officiating in Italy will suffer as a consequence.
"Juventus, above everything else, lack respect. They are arrogant," Cellino said at a press conference.
"For months they have screamed about the referees and in the long run this attitude will affect our playing environment.
"I expect a great performance [against Juve]. I would have the same approach if we played against Milan."
Cellino also lamented a "bad year" for football, as he reflected on the players' strike at the start of the season and the controversy of Juve's third star among other issues affecting Calcio.
"Someone in Turin has also started to talk about the third star. Unfortunately it's been a bad year for football," he continued.
"We started badly with a players' strike that could have been avoided and there are still many unresolved problems.
"Unfortunately due to the mandates of Coni and the FIGC, our football is fragile at the mercy of politics."
The president had his say on the incident which saw Delio Rossi relieved from his managerial post at Fiorentina following his assault on Adem Ljajic, stating that while he did not condone the coach's actions, he would still consider appointing him.
"I'm with Delio Rossi. Yes he was wrong, but certain actions must be understood," he mused.
"Ljajic should also not pass for a victim. It was a similar story here when Carlo Mazzone slapped Francesco Cozza at San Siro.
"Massimo Ficcadenti has all my confidence, but I respect Rossi. In fact I'd take him at Cagliari."
