Cristiano Ronaldo's Sister Lays Into Maurizio Sarri's Tactics After Coppa Italia Final Defeat

Cristiano Ronaldo's Sister Lays Into Maurizio Sarri's Tactics After Coppa Italia Final Defeat

Cristiano Ronaldo's sister laid into Maurizio Sarri's tactics after Juventus lost the Coppa Italia to Napoli.

The Bianconeri lost 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw, with Paulo Dybala and Danilo both missing from 12 yards in the shoot-out.

For the first time in his club career Ronaldo has lost consecutive finals and his sister Elma Aveiro put the blame on Sarri's style of play not getting the best out of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "What more can you do? This is it and that's all, that's why my darling can't work miracles on his own ... I don't understand how you can play like this anyway ... head up, my King."

And many believe the reason he didn't step up from 12 yards was because he wanted be the fifth taker and ultimately the hero - though it never get to that stage as Napoli scored all four of their penalties.

Juventus had won the Coppa Italia four years on the trot prior to Ronaldo making the switch to Turin, and Napoli have ended that streak by winning their first bit of silverware for six seasons.
