According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, before the final of the Italian Cup against Napoli, the Portuguese striker of Turin’s Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo, had a conflict with the head coach of the team Maurizio Sarri.
According to the Italian edition, the coach of the “old lady” asked the Portuguese to play as a central striker. Still, Ronaldo rudely refused him and explained that he had been playing on the left throughout his career.
It is also noted that the incident took place in the presence of everyone during the training. That may have a negative impact on the authority of Sarri in the eyes of the players.
A series of penalties revealed the winner of the Italian Cup. Napoli won 4: 2 and also won the national cup for the sixth time.
After losing to Napoli, the same publication reported that if the club failed to succeed in the Italian championship and the Champions League, the Juventus leadership would stop cooperating with Maurizio Sarri.
Maurizio Sarri: “I talked to Ronaldo for a long time.”
Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri spoke to the media about Cristiano Ronaldo and said he was out of shape.
“I talked to Ronaldo for a long time yesterday. Hopefully, today or in a maximum of one week, he will become the fantastic player we are used to seeing again. It’s just that he’s not in the best shape right now,” he said.
I will tell you that after the Coronavirus pandemic, Juventus played two matches and failed to score a goal. The Portuguese believes that Sarri’s tactics did not work, so a similar result was expected.
To remind you, on June 22, Juventus will meet Bologna in the 27th round of Serie A.
