Cristiano Ronaldo showed signs of frustration after being subbed off during Sunday’s Serie A showdown between Juventus and AC Milan
The Portuguese superstar was practically invisible during his 55-minute spell on the pitch, producing only one shot on target and barely influencing the game.
Maurizio Sarri opted to introduce Paulo Dybala in favor of Ronaldo ten minutes inside the second half, which saw the 34-year-old leaving the field in frustration.
Seemingly irritated with Sarri’s decision, Cristiano refused to shake hands with the manager and instead headed straight down the tunnel, according to the Daily Mirror.

It was the second consecutive game that the Italian manager withdrew his headline performer in the second half following Juve’s 2-1 victory over Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League.
The former Real Madrid forward is enduring a challenging period at the Allianz Stadium, but his unhappiness with the current situation is at the moment hidden behind a smokescreen.
While Ronaldo struggles to find a way out of a crisis, Dybala’s impact seems to be growing day by day, as the Argentinean tore apart the Rossoneri’s defense in the 77th minute to propel Juventus back to the top of the Serie A table.
