"A problem with Ronaldo? No, on the contrary," coach Juventino Maurizio Sarri replied when asked about this issue by a Sky journalist.
"First, I thank you for being available when you are not in exceptional physical condition. I preferred to change it because I didn't think it was very good. But he has tried everything to be able to play "added the coach.
"It is normal to be angry when leaving. This is valid for all players, especially for those who make sacrifices," he insisted.
Asked if he was going to admonish the Portuguese for his attitude, Sarri replied: "No, there is a threshold of tolerance with those who give everything." "Five minutes of anger seems normal to me. A coach likes to see a furious player on his way out. Otherwise I would worry"Sarri reiterated before giving details about the physical status of the Portuguese striker.
"He has had a small problem in the knee, he received a blow in training. Since then he has had a small discomfort. It is at a time when you cannot train to the fullest. Can't 100% Chuck"he concluded.
