Giuseppe Iaquinta, the father of the striker and his agent, has been unhappy at how the 32-year-old has been ignored by the coaching staff in the current season. The former Udinese striker has yet to make a single Serie A appearance and appears to have lost his place in the first team.
The senior Iaquinta criticised the club for treating his son in such a manner and feels that the striker's patchy record with injuries has effectively killed off his Juve career.
And most crucially, he believes that the club should not have signed the likes of Bendtner and Marco Boriello when a senior player was available to provide cover for the frontline.
"This purchase [of Bendtner] I do not understand," Giuseppe told Tutto Juve. "Why spend money on him when you have Vincenzo in the team? Last year they took Marco Borriello - doing this has written down my son in an incredible way.
"I do not understand. What has Vincenzo done wrong? He was always respectful, always tried in training and because he suffered some injuries, has been shown the door like this.
"We have been polite, respectful, and yet Juve and the president do not say a word. When Juve were going through a bad period, Vincenzo was there for them. And then when he suffered some bad injuries, he was shut out like a rookie.
"It is not fair to treat a person like that. With all due respect to the Agnelli family, you cannot destroy a person psychologically like they have done with Vincenzo."
He also revealed that the player had spurned several opportunities to seal a move away from the club in the past.
"There have been no serious proposals from any clubs [recently]," he said.
"We cannot say we have rejected any sides, because there never were any.
"In the past, before the injuries, we rejected the likes of Zenit St. Petersburg and Tottenham, for the sake of Juventus.
"Where we are going we do not know. At the moment, he trains on his own. But we have never been hostile to Juve."
Iaquinta has scored 30 goals from 88 appearances in the Serie A for Juventus and is in the final year of his contract.
