Lazio coach Sarri: Ronaldo and I never had a problem

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri insists he had no problem working with Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sarri and Ronaldo had a season together at Juventus.

After victory at Cagliari, Sarri was asked about the Portuguese great: "Cristiano scored more Serie A goals in his season with me than any other.

“He was prepared to play centre-forward in a few games when we had an emergency situation, but he didn't much like the idea of doing it regularly.

“In those situations, you end up challenging the certainties that the player has. Ronaldo scored 35-40 goals per season by starting from that wider position, so for him it was an almost absurd request. That is understandable for the way he plays."
