C. Ronaldo was upset at being substitutes in Juventus win because he was battling with injury, Maurizio Sarri claims


MAURIZIO SARRI has revealed that C.  Ronaldo was furious when substituted against Lokomotiv Moscow because of an injury.
As the Portuguese winger walked off the pitch during Wednesday's Champions League game, he marched straight past his manager while muttering to himself.

Some took that as a sign that Ronaldo was angry with Sarri.
Juve were still drawing 1-1 when the replacement was made with the star forward apparently suffering from a thigh problem.
Coach Sarri told Sky Sports Italia: "Cristiano Ronaldo was angry because he's not okay.
"He's had a niggle in his knee for the past few days, which is overloading his thigh, which tires him out too much.
"At the break he was already worried about it.
"Then, when I saw him make a movement I didn't like when he was accelerating, I took him off because I was scared that he might do himself real harm."
Douglas Costa rolled home Juventus' winner in stoppage time to confirm their passage into the last-16.
But it wasn't a brilliant night for Ronaldo individually as he was denied a 128th Champions League goal when Aaron Ramsey poked his parried free-kick home as it crossed the line .
The 34-year-old has already missed one game this season with a thigh issue, September's win over Brescia.
Sarri will have a big decision to make in the coming days too with the Old Lady facing crunch matches against AC Milan, Atalanta and Atletico Madrid.
