Ronaldo was hauled off by the Juve boss against AC Milan and the Portugal captain was visibly furious.
Now The Daily Mail have reported that he hurled abuse Sarri's way as he left the pitch.

Gazzetta Dello Sport have also reported that the former Real Madrid man will not be fined for the outburst but will have to apologise for his conduct following the withdrawal.
It's the second time he has been substituted in as many games after also coming off against Locomotiv Moscow in the Champions League last Wednesday.
Ronaldo was substituted just before the hour mark at the Juventus Stadium as his side looked to move back to the top of Serie A.
Ironically, it was Paulo Dybala who went on to score the winner, the man who came on to replace the 34-year-old.
:speaking_head: "Here goes DYBALA! Juve find their hero!"

The five time Ballon d'Or winner also left the stadium before the end of the game.
Asked about the incident in his post-match interview Sarri couldn't confirm the reports, saying, "Disrespectful to his teammates? Like I said, I don't know.
"If it's true that he left before the end it is a problem to be resolved with his teammates."
The former Chelsea manager did mention that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner had been struggling with an injury.
The injury could have played in to the two substitutions within a week.
Per The Guardian, Sarri also said:
"I have no problem with Cristiano, he should be thanked because he made himself available despite not being in the best condition," said Sarri.
"In the last month he has had discomfort in his knee and this is a little problem for him."
Two substitutions in a week already matches the number of withdrawals the striker had in the whole of last season.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of his second season in Italy unfolds.
