Ronaldo in trouble, likely to face ‘two year ban’ after leaving stadium against AC Milan
Juventus may have a great evening following crushing their rival AC Milan, but that wasn’t the case for the former Real Madrid player, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo was replaced by Paulo Dybala in the 55th-minute with the scores still 0-0.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner didn’t look happy to be subbed as he muttered something under his breath in the direction of Maurizio Sarri and walked straight down the tunnel.
But, once again, Sarri’s controversial decision was vindicated as Dybala scored the only goal of the game in the 77th-minute.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo didn’t seem too interested in whether his side would go on to win the match.
That’s because Sky Sport Italia – per Football Italia – then confirmed that Ronaldo had left the Allianz Stadium before the match had even finished – in the 87th-minute to be exact.
According to former Italian footballer Antonio Cassano, Ronaldo could be facing a two-year ban – a ban that he was threatened with himself.
“Did he leave before the end of the game?” Cassano asked on the Italian television show Tiki-Taka, per AS. “You can’t do that because there is an anti-doping control.
