Allegri does not believe in sanctioning Ronaldo by gesture against Atletico MadridMarch 17, 2019
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said yesterday he does not expect Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo to be sanctioned for the gesture he made on Tuesday in the Champions League game against Atletico Madrid.
Luso scored all three goals that ensured Juventus's quarter-final triumph and, at the end of the match, celebrated the feat with a gesture similar to what Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone had pitched in first leg of the tie and awarded him a fine of € 20,000 for improper conduct.
"I think on Tuesday everyone celebrated in their own way. The stadium had 42,000 fans, they should punish everyone. I do not think it's anything special [a celebração do Cristiano]. We are not afraid of any penalty, and there will not be, "said the Italian coach at the press conference to launch the match against Genoa to the Italian league.
The leaders of Turin, who are 18 points clear of second place in the championship, Napoli, decided to leave out Cristiano Ronaldo in order to spare him the next Juventus commitments.
"Cristiano played a lot of games and I left him at home, because he will have two matches with his team. It was too risky to make him play, "Allegri said in a decision taken with the agreement of the Portuguese ace.
On the Champions League's glorious day against the Spaniards, Allegri said that "it was a good night, especially because of the enthusiasm of the fans". He added: "We have to continue to work humbly and train well. Against Atletico we had lucidity and freshness ".
