Ronaldo was angry because he wasn't very well: Sarri
Sarri said Ronaldo was angry as he wasn't very well.
"Ronaldo was angry because he wasn't very well, he had a knee problem a few days ago and his adductor muscle easily got tired," he said to Goal.com.
"At the end of the first half he was nervous. I was afraid he would hurt himself and I preferred to take him off," he added.
