Must resolve his injury problems

Juventus are currently playing with fire by continually playing Ronaldo in his injured state. If they’re not careful, the gamble could backfire and result in a lengthy layoff for the Real Madrid legend.

With his 35th birthday less than three months away, Ronaldo must take precautions even when he doesn’t like it. 

So, it’s imperative that Sarri makes his star player’s well-being a priority for a change. There is simply no point taking this unnecessary risk any further.

They got a last-16 spot in the Champions League sealed, and don’t really need Ronaldo for the Serie A. So why not give him the rest he desperately needs right now?
