“He is a Champion” – Sarri hails Ronaldo


The Italian Manager has hailed Cristiano Ronaldo effort in last night nervy draw against inform Atalanta.

The Champions were on the verge of losing the Serie A tie, but Ronaldo came to the rescue with two well taken penalties, and this impressed Mauricio Sarri.

“He is a champion with his feet but also with his head, He manages to handle the pressures he has on him in an incredible way. Tonight’s point was sweaty and deserved. We drew against one of the best teams in Europe, and it’s a very important result, Merit goes to a second half of quality, in which we attacked Atalanta higher, while focusing on their physical decline, and we scored goals in our best moment. The game in Milan, in which we played well for a long time, could have left us with waste. In the first half we suffered, but in the second half we came out well. The Scudetto race is by no means closed, there are still 18 points available. It is a very difficult phase of the season, the games are very expensive, and it is difficult to find continuity”.
