Cristiano Ronaldo allegedly called Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri a ‘son of a whore’ after being substituted on Sunday.
Ronaldo was removed by the manager and replaced by Paul Dybala who ironically scored the only winning goal for the club in the match against AC Milan.
The Portuguese star looked visibly angry and muttered some words before walking down the tunnel.
Daily Mail revealed that he called Maurizio “son of a whore” and even left the stadium before the end of the game.
The former Real Madrid striker will also not be fined for his behaviour. But he will have to issue an apology.
This would be the second time Ronaldo was substituted in Juventus game. The first was in the Champions League game against Lokomotiv Moscow last week Wednesday; and clash against AC Milan on Sunday.
Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri, excused the Sunday incident saying the five-time Ballon d’Or winner had been struggling with an injury.
“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.
“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 former Chelsea manager added.
