Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo posted on his Instagram a response after news broke that he will miss the third game with his club in the Italian championship.
Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri earlier excluded Ronaldo from the team’s roster for the upcoming match against Atlanta in Group A of the nation’s tournament.
The Portuguese star broke the silence on Friday, commenting on the situation around the much-anticipated match.
“Focused on my recovery to come back soon”, Ronaldo said, without providing further details.
The comment is accompanied by a picture of him in apparently a training suit, modified with a grey filter.
Ronaldo reportedly has an ongoing conflict with the Juventus head coach after a game against Milan on November 10 when the Portuguese football star was disgruntled with Sarri’s decision to substitute him.
The 34-year-old striker left the stadium before the end of the game after reportedly insulting the coach.
