The 34-year-old came off for Dybala but reportedly insulted his manager on his way out of the field – Ronaldo was said to have called the Italian born manager ‘son of a wh’ore’
Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly not be fined following his outburst after being substituted in his side’s 1-0 won over AC Milan over the weekend.
The 34-year-old was removed for Paulo Dybala, who eventually scored the only goal that separated the two sides at the end of the game.

After the game, Maurizio Sarri said: “We must thank Ronaldo,
because he made a sacrifice to be there at all tonight in a difficult situation. “He did everything possible to play, but I saw he was not well and thought it best to take him off
It’s only natural a player is going to be irritated to leave the pitch, especially when he worked so hard to be there.
He continued: “When he trains at high intensity or plays, it unbalances him, so he ends up overcompensating and it damages the calf and thigh muscles.
“It is affecting his performances and he is not at his best at the moment. “All players who are trying to give their best will have at least five minutes of being annoyed when they are substituted, but a coach would, in general, be much more worried if he didn’t seem upset.” Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo furiously left the stadium and headed home after being subbed during a tough Serie A encounter between Juventus and AC Milan on Sunday.
The 34-year-old Portuguese star was taken off the pitch for Paulo Dybala after just nine minutes into the second half while the scoreline was still at 0-0.
