Juventus registered a 1-0 win over AC Milan in Serie A courtesy a goal fro Paulo Dybala but Cristiano Ronaldo’s substitution seems to have stolen all the limelight. He was taken off by manager Maurizio Sarri in the 55th minute of the match for Dybala with many reports claiming it was a tactical decision and not a forced one.
However, new footage has emerged which shows Ronaldo asking to be taken off as he wasn’t feeling 100% fit. The Portuguese ran straight down the tunnel after getting substituted and even left the stadium three minutes before full-time.

Watch what actually happened as Ronaldo asked to be subbed off, contrary to widespread reports.
Sky Sports showed images in the 69th min of how Cristiano Ronaldo asked for the change in 58th min because of injury . Upon leaving he went directly to the locker room. pic.twitter.com/ovmyWu1whJ

Thank you! I saw him raise his hand and the US commentators stated he was asking for a sub. I’m confused where all this made up beef is coming from?
