Cristiano Ronaldo is having a great time with Maurizio Sarri. The Italian manager, before arriving from Stamford Bridge in June, promised that he wants to help club talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to reach new heights. However, the latest interaction between the two suggests that Ronaldo is not really fond of early substitution.
The Bianconeri took on their historical rivals AC Milan in yesterday’s derby at the Allianz Stadium, and secured a clean 1-0 victory. The 77th minute decider came fromo Paulo Dybala, who was subbed in for Ronaldo in the 55th minute. As captured in the cameras, the Portuguese attacker was seemingly furious leaving the field, and cussed at Sarri, possibly calling him a ‘Son of a W**re’.

Media outlets such as The Daily Mail and Gazzetta Dello Sport are speculating on the exact words that came out of the 34 year old’s mouth, who also left the stadium before the final whistle. Although, reports suggest the 5 times Ballon d’Or winner will be asked to make an apology, but spared from any monetary compensation.
However, Sarri seems to be totally oblivious about it. Speaking in the post match interview, the 60 year old spoke in all favour for the player.
“Disrespectful to his teammates? Like I said, I don’t know. If it’s true that he left before the end it is a problem to be resolved with his teammates.” he told the reporters.
“I have no problem with Cristiano, he should be thanked because he made himself available despite not being in the best condition. In the last month he has had discomfort in his knee and this is a little problem for him.” the gaffer added.
Stout at the top of the table with 32 points, the Old Lady will face Atalanta at the Atleti Azzurri d’Italia on 23rd November.
