Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo warned: You've risked TWO-YEAR ban

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has risked a TWO-YEAR ban in Serie A after leaving the stadium before the end of victory over AC Milan.

Ronaldo was hooked on 55 minutes for the eventual matchwinner Paulo Dybala on Sunday and is said to have left the ground before the final whistle.

There is no suggestion that Ronaldo left to avoid a doping test.

However, former Roma star Antonio Cassano has warned that if Ronaldo did leave the match early for any reason then he risks violating anti-doping control rules.

"Did he leave before the end of the game?" Cassano asked on Tiki-Taka.

"You can't do that because there is an anti-doping control,' he explained.

"I had to go back to the stadium urgently to avoid a two-year ban."
