Roberto Mancini believes Cristiano Ronaldo needs to show more respect.
The Italian national team coach has called out Cristiano Ronaldo for his recent behavior, as well as an apparent blatant disregard for the rules.
Ronaldo did not reacted well to Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri substituting him in both his last two appearances for the club.
The first time saw Ronaldo give his manager a look of complete disgust in the decision to replace him with Douglas Costa.

The second time saw the Portuguese superstar walk straight down the tunnel and apparently leave the stadium before the game was even over.
This kind of behavior has seen him called out by Azzurri boss Roberto Mancini.
According to Eurosport, Mancini is not happy.
“Footballers need to respect their coaches’ decisions.”
“What Ronaldo did wasn’t nice.”
“He has to apologize for the way he acted.”
CR7 has somewhat of a love-hate relationship with the public, and their perception of the superstar will not have been enhanced following the incident.
While an apology is highly unlikely, Ronaldo might to do well to listen to some good advice from Mancini.
