The Portuguese superstar arrived in Turin in 2018 with the aim being to propel Juventus to Champions League glory. That aim remains unfulfilled.
Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo's expectations of winning a 6th Champions League title this season have been squashed after a turbulent round of 16 loss to FC Porto.
Notwithstanding winning the second leg 3-2 in Turin, the 4-4 total outcome was sufficiently not to see Juventus improvement as Port booked their spot in the quarter-finals on away goals.
"Since Ronaldo arrived, Juventus have sacked [Max] Allegri and now Sarri for underperforming," pointed out one fan.
"Before him, they had [Allegri] employed for five straight years. They should really look at the common denominator in these last two seasons."
Ronaldo has funded his lavish purchases with a salary that was recently revealed to be worth £31 million at the Serie A champions, giving him a basic wage that is around four times as much as the next highest earner at the club.
"Ronaldo is just a tall dictator," argued one critic, claiming that the Portugal captain had directly advised the club hierarchy to remove Sarri after a first season in which the former Chelsea coach had been expected to challenge for the Champions League.
Juventus director Fabio Paratici said " There's still another year of contract expiring in June 2022 for Ronaldo"
