Ronaldo left the field after 55 minutes, replacing Argentina's Paulo Dybala, who later scored in the 77th minute the only goal of the game. At the time of the announcement of the replacement, the Portuguese footballer seemed quite dissatisfied, gesturing and appearing to point certain words to his coach. He also went straight to the locker room, writes The Guardian.
In addition, according to Sky Sport Italy, Ronaldo left the stadium just during the match, three minutes before the last whistle. Despite these events, coach Maurizio Sarri said he knows nothing about his player's gestures.
"Disrespectful to his colleagues? Like I said, I don't know. If it is true that he left before the end of the match, then he must solve the problem with his colleagues. I don't have a problem with Cristiano. He should be pleased because he managed to be available despite the fact that he was not in the best shape. In the last month he has felt a discomfort in his knees, and this is a small problem for him ”, said Maurizio Sarri.
Also, Cristiano Ronaldo was also replaced during the match with Lokomotiv Moscow, Wednesday, score 2-1, in the Champions League groups. Paulo Dybala came on, in the 81st minute.
