Juventus ace Ronaldo urges Sarri to play three up front

Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo has urged coach Maurizio Sarri to play three up front.

Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain struck in their Champions League win at Bayer Leverkusen, with Paulo Dybala also outstanding on the night.

"When I play with both Dybala and Higuain, we have a great understanding, I like to play with both," Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

“We have a lot of fun on the pitch, but the coach makes the decisions and we must respect them."

On his fitness, Ronaldo continued: “I feel good, the physical problems I had have passed. I spent four weeks in pain, but now I'm fine.

“The team are doing well, we played very well in the second half, we are top in our group, things are improving also for me.

“Now, I have more confidence and I hope to continue like this."
