Juventus midfielder Rabiot mocks press as 'strike' ends

Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot has laughed off reports of going on strike.

In Italy, it was claimed Rabiot had chosen to remain in France and was refusing to return to Turin for training over Juve's plans to demand hefty pay-cuts for all theier players.

However, Rabiot has now declared on social media he's returning to Italy to prepare for the season's resumption - and had a message for the press, by including a picture of a bottle of poison branded with 'press'.

"When you realize that it is your last day of ... strike," he posted.

The Frenchman is due in Turin today.
