Juventus coach Sarri responds to Pjanic bust-up claims; Ronaldo relationship

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri denies he's had a bust-up with Miralem Pjanic.

Turin press claims have stated the pair clashed in training and that Pjanic could be dropped for the game with Bologna.

“That's fake news, there was no argument," Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.

“He is one of the players I fielded the most this season and I have to rely on him, because he has a decisive role in the three-man midfield."

On his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, Sarri added: “I spoke to Ronaldo before the Milan semi-final and the Lazio Final. We talk. He tends to do his best work when starting slightly out wide."
