Cassano: Juventus coach Sarri irritating Ronaldo

Former Italy star Antonio Cassano believes Juventus have problems between Cristiano Ronaldo and coach Maurizio Sarri.

Cassano reckons Juve are hiding an issue between the pair.

“I think Ronaldo has a big problem with Sarri," Cassano told Tiki Taka.

“Everything started with the two consecutive substitutions, which would irritate any player.

“In my opinion, there's a problem between them and Juventus have succeeded in playing it down."

Cassano also argues that Gigi Buffon is a better keeper than Wojciech Szczesny.

"Buffon should play because he remains a better option than Szczesny.

“He was always benched at Arsenal and was a backup to [Manuel] Almunia and [Lukasz] Fabianski. At Roma he had a good year, while now he is in his first year as a starter.

“Anyway, right before Gigi's mistake (against Sassuolo), it needs to be said that [Matthijs] De Ligt made yet another mistake."
