Sarri: "Ronaldo played injured"

Maurizio Sarri for Ronaldo…

Cristiano Ronaldo's departure from the field for the second match in a row caused a lot of controversy on social networks and online media. While Juventus was still on the field opposite Milan, the attention of sports fans focused on Ronaldo and his reaction after the replacement.

The same situation continued after the end of the match where opinions were different on the reasons for the Portuguese leaving the game and what his reaction meant.

To answer these questions were the words of the Italian coach of Juventus, Maurizio Sarri who said that Cristiano Ronaldo played with an injury in his knee and thanked the Portuguese star for this.

Juventus made another unconvincing match and it took a late goal by Paulo Dybala to get 3 points and get back to the top of the standings. The Argentine was activated in the 55th minute instead of Cristiano Ronaldo and managed to prove once again decisive. As for the Portuguese in the media it was rumored that he left the stadium 3 minutes in front of teammates, an action that immediately began to be commented in the media and it took coach Sarri's words that this situation take a less negative context.

"We have to thank him Ronaldo, because he made a sacrifice to be on the field tonight in a difficult situation. "He did everything he could to play, but I saw that he was not feeling well and I thought it would be more appropriate to take him out of the game," the Italian told Sky Sport Italia.

"It is natural for a player to be irritated after leaving the field, especially if he has tried so hard to be there. Over the past month he has had a minor knee problem, had a crash in training and damaged the ligament. "If he trains or plays with high intensity, this injury unbalances him, and ends up straining, damaging the muscles of the pulp and thigh."

"This is affecting Ronaldo's performance and he is not at his best at the moment. "All players trying to give their best will have 5 minutes frustrated after the substitution, but a coach should be more concerned if they do not look upset."

Regarding his team's game against Milan, Sarri stated:

"I liked the spirit of the team, but we still have to improve a lot in terms of quality, because we made a lot of mistakes, we lost the ball many times and we left Milan a lot of space. They had kicks to the gate, but were almost all from outside the area. "They have a lot of quality in assists and made an appearance beyond their average performance this season."

Despite everything, in the end Juventus came out with 3 points from a not easy confrontation, despite the fact that the game of the whites still passes. As for the Cristiano-Sarri relationship, only the TV footage and the words of the Italian technician are known and time will tell what the real relationship is between them.

However, it would be good for all sides for this situation to pass and for Juventus to return dominated led by Ronaldo on the field and Sarri from the bench as the big champions need each other to lead their team to trophies.
