Champions League The score was still 1-1
Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t seem happy at being taken off in the 81st minute of Juventus’ 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League.
Maurizio Sarri replaced Ronaldo with Paulo Dybala with the score level at 1-1, with Douglas Costa scoring the winner in added time.
“He was annoyed because he wasn’t well [physically],” Sarri said about Ronaldo‘s reaction to the substitution.
“He’s been feeling a small niggle in his ankle for the last few days and his adductor was hurting him.
“I was already nervous about this at half time.
“After, when I saw him make a movement in a sprint that I didn’t like, I took him off because I was afraid he’d hurt himself.”
