Juventus Forward, Cristiano Ronaldo was replaced by Paulo Dybala in the 55th-minute with the scores still 0-0.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner didn’t look happy to be subbed as he muttered something under his breath in the direction of Maurizio Sarri and walked straight down the tunnel
Sky Sport Italia – per Football Italia – then confirmed that Ronaldo had left the Allianz Stadium before the match had even finished – in the 87th-minute to be exact.
And, apparently, that could land him in big trouble.
According to former Italian footballer Antonio Cassano, Ronaldo could be facing a two-year ban – a ban that he was threatened with himself.
“Did he leave before the end of the game?” Cassano asked on the Italian television show Tiki-Taka, per AS. “You can’t do that because there is an anti-doping control.
‘I had to go back to the stadium urgently to avoid a two-year ban’. He said when he was explaining how he faced a similar case.
