Juventus defender Bonucci admits players haven't heard from Ronaldo

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has confirmed the players haven't heard from Cristiano Ronaldo since victory over AC Milan.

Ronaldo was hooked on 55 minutes and left the stadium before the final whistle in the 1-0 win. He then left Turin to join up with Portugal's squad without offering an explanation to coach Maurizio Sarri nor his teammates.

Bonucci said, “I like to look forward and not back. There will be time to talk, now I want to think about the national team.

“He will play with Portugal, meaning that he physically he's better and mentally he's great as ever.

“When we return to Turin, there will be a way to meet and talk. There are still many games where we'll need the best Ronaldo.

“I'm convinced that his objective is to improve with respect to the past and help Juventus achieve all their objectives."
