When the match was 0-0, coach Maurizzio Sarri took Portuguese out of the field and sent Pualo Dybala instead, the same modification he had made in the week against Lokomotiv for the Champions League. Although the change made him lost again, the Argentine scored the winning goal, his decision did not fall well in his main figure.
The Portuguese, who had also left the field ten minutes from the end in the Champions League duel won 2-1 on the field of Lokomotiv Moscow last Wednesday, left the grass visibly annoyed and He went straight to the locker room instead of sitting on the substitute's bench next to the rest of his teammates. His gesture gave way to rumors about a possible conflict with the coach, but he ruled out those versions at a press conference.
"No problem with Cristiano, on the contrary, I thank him because he played in imperfect conditions and then I replaced him because he was not well. The important thing is that it was available. If you get angry when it comes out, this is part of the game. In the last month he also had a small knee problem: a month ago he received a blow and has a small resentment that causes pain in his calves and adductors, he cannot train so much, ”Sarri explained.
This argument is also supported by the images of the English transmission that captured the moment in which CR7 makes the change gesture to the bank. Therefore, the annoyance of the forward must correspond to his physical discomfort, and not to a costume conflict.
Cristiano scored a single goal in the last five games played. He signed it in the 95th minute of the duel won 2-1 against Genoa, while he saw no door twice against Lokomotiv and against Torino, in addition to this Sunday. Until now, the Portuguese scored five goals in Serie A and He gave an assistance. To them is added the much marked to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.
Thanks to the triumph of this Sunday, the Juventus he recovered the top of Series A, which he had momentarily lost to the Inter de Milan. On the next day he will visit Atalanta on Saturday, November 23.
