Cristiano Ronaldo is aging and it reflects on his performances on the pitch with the Portuguese seemingly dropping off every season.

After Ronaldo left the stadium early in a Juve win last night, Fabio Capello had some harsh words for the Portuguese.

Asked about Ronaldo leaving for the tunnel immediately, Capello replied:

“I didn’t like this, it wasn’t nice,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia.

“He must be a champion even when he comes off the pitch.

He then proceeded to sput out some very words which the Portuguese won’t like:

“The truth is that Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t dribbled [past] an opponent for three years,” as quoted by Express.

Clearly, Ronaldo isn’t one of those players who would want to be taken off this early in a game. However, Sarri wouldn’t be sweating much over it given the fact that Dybala (the man who replaced him), ended up winning the game for the Old Lady.
