Ronaldo avoids fine despite Juventus star’s anger at substitution

The Portuguese star was left displeased following his replacement this weekend but has escaped any sanctions for his reaction at Allianz Arena, according to Goal

Cristiano Ronaldo will escape both a fine and any further punishment for his angered reaction following his substitution during Juventus’ Serie A win over Milan on Sunday.

However, Ronaldo’s reaction indicated a strong displeasure after he was taken from the field, with reports suggesting that the 34-year-old did not even remain for the rest of the match after he headed down the tunnel.

The forward has since taken to social media to break his silence, with a simple picture on Instagram captioned: “Difficult game, important victory.”

According to Goal, Bianconeri have now confirmed that they will take no action against Ronaldo for his response to being pulled by Sarri.

Ronaldo now turns his attention to international duty with Portugal, where he will be expected to skipper his nation against Lithuania and Luxembourg in their final Euro 2020 qualifiers.
