National Sportslink gathered that after being substituted in their Champions League match, Ronaldo was once again substituted in Juventus’ match vs AC Milan on Sunday. The substitute Paulo Dybala went on to win the match for Juventus. However, Ronaldo did not bother to stay till the end of the match.
Some have speculated that Ronaldo was substituted because of a minor injury concern; one that has been plaguing him for a while. However, Ronaldo seemingly muttered something to Maurizio Sarri before making his way down the tunnel after he was substituted yet again.
According to Dailymail, the words mouthed by Cristiano Ronaldo for his manager were ‘Son of a w**re’. However, Gazzetta Dello Sport have also reported that the former Real Madrid man will not be fined for the outburst but will have to apologize for his conduct following the withdrawal.
It’s the second time he has been substituted in as many games after also coming off against Locomotiv Moscow in the Champions League last Wednesday.
Ronaldo was substituted just before the hour mark at the Juventus Stadium as his side looked to move back to the top of Serie A.
Far little comeuppance for Sarri here as the supposed boss of the side. However, that is perhaps a reality Sarri will have to get used to so long as he has Cristiano Ronaldo in his team. Ronaldo will always be Juventus’ number one priority. Sarri will have to search deep and wide to find the balance between a star and a performer in Ronaldo if he is to make things work at Turin.
Look at this!
