“Cristiano has a little fatigue to the adductors,” said Sarri during the press conference.

But moments back, the club took to its official twitter page to announce that Ronaldo will have to watch from the bench as his side battle Mario Balotelli and his mates.

Balotelli has of lately been impressing Brescia manager and the Italian hasn’t faced Ronaldo since the Portuguese left Man United although he is not excited if he would ever will.

“Ronaldo’s presence doesn’t really interest me. I’ll try to score and play the way I will in any game,” Balotelli told reporters.
