Cristiano Ronaldo will escape both a fine and any further punishment for his angered reaction following his substitution during Juventus’ Serie A win over Milan on Sunday.
The Portuguese star was switched out 10 minutes into the second half following a subdued performance with the scores locked at 0-0, to be replaced by Paulo Dybala.
The latter netted the only goal of the match with just under a quarter-hour to go, to ensure that Maurizio Sarri’s side remain perched at the top of the table, a point ahead of nearest rivals Inter.
However, Ronaldo’s reaction indicated a strong displeasure after he was taken from the field, with reports suggesting that the 34-year-old did not even remain for the rest of the match after he headed down the tunnel.
The forward has since taken to social media to break his silence, with a simple picture on Instagram captioned: “Difficult game, important victory.”
The Bianconeri have now confirmed that they will take no action against Ronaldo for his response to being pulled by Sarri.
