Former Juventus midfielder Massimo Mauro has lifted the lid on Cristiano Ronaldo being dropped for the final game of his Juventus career.
Mauro has accused the Manchester United striker of physically threatening his then Juve teammate Federico Chiesa.
He told TuttoJuve: “Don’t compare Ronaldo with Maradona.
“Diego was popular with all his teammates while Cristiano was trashing the locker room. Once Ronaldo raised his hand to a teammate in the Juventus dressing room. Federico Chiesa must muster up the courage to say so.
“For this reason, (Andrea) Pirlo did not release Cristiano on the field in his last match at the head of Juventus.
“Ronaldo went to Turin to win the Champions League and the only thing he didn’t achieve was the Champions League. He reached the quarterfinals finals and the round of 16.”
