Cristiano Ronaldo, replaced before the hour of play in the victory of Juventus against AC Milan (1-0), left the stadium even before the end of the match, reports Sunday evening the Italian channel Sky.
The television footage showed Ronaldo, gloomy look, let go of a few words towards the bench of Juventus before returning directly to the locker room after being replaced by Dybala. And, according to Sky, he had already left the stadium a few minutes before the final whistle.
"Ronaldo, a problem? No, it's the opposite "replied his coach Maurizio Sarri to a question from a Sky reporter after the match.
"Already, I thank him for making himself available while he is not in exceptional physical condition. I preferred to replace it because it did not seem very good. But he did everything to be ready to play », added Sarri.
"To be angry to go out is normalcy. It's good for all players, especially those who have made sacrifices "he still thought.
Asked whether he was going " Pull the ears " to the Portuguese, Sarri replied "No, there is a threshold of tolerance with those who try to give everything".
"Five minutes of anger, that seems normal to me. It's also fun for a coach to see a furious player go out. It's more the opposite that would worry me », he added, before giving more details about Ronaldo's physical condition.
"He had that little knee problem, he took a shot at training. He has a little discomfort since. He's in a moment where he can not train more than that. It's hard to hit 100%, he said.
