🇮🇹 Sarri explains incredible challenge of managing Ronaldo: "He's a multinational company"

Former Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that managing Crisitiano Ronaldo requires for special skills and knowledge.

The duo worked together at Juventus two season ago, before Sarri was ufortunately given his marching orders despite winning the Italian title.

"Managing Ronaldo is not simple, from all points of view," Sarri told SportItalia.

"He’s a multinational company, he has personal interests that must coincide with football.

"His interests go beyond normalcy, beyond the team or club. I’m a coach, not a manager. Ronaldo, however, brings the numbers at the end of the year. But in recent years, I hear a lot about players and little about teams.

Sarri concluded to say respond on whether he believes Juventus should extend Ronaldo's stay in Turin or not.

"It depends on the needs of the club," he added.

"If they have to save on the salary then they have to make a choice. In my opinion it is better to give up one player than five or six with the same savings," concluded the new Napoli manager.

Meanwhile, Sarri will be watching his countrymen in the 2020 Euros as Italy battle Spain in the semi-finals on Tuesday.
