Cristiano Ronaldo's sister believes the blame for Juventus' Coppa Italia final defeat by Napoli rests with Maurizio Sarri and not her brother after insisting he 'can't do miracles on his own'.
For the second consecutive game since football returned in Italy, http://www.marcsdesign.shop/Cook_With_Confidence_With_The_Riida_Wireless_Meat_Thermometer_For_26 Ronaldo and his Juventus team-mates ground out a 0-0 draw before eventually losing the final inside an empty Stadio Olimpico in a penalty shootout.
Ronaldo was targeted by fans' criticism as he was not among Juventus' four penalty takers - Paulo Dybala, Danilo, Leonardo Bonucci and Aaron Ramsey stepped up - and he was largely peripheral in the game.

It represented the first time in Ronaldo's 18-year professional career that he has lost consecutive club finals but for his sister Elma Aveiro, Sarri's rigid tactics are what is holding Juventus back from maximising Ronaldo's talents.
She : '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.'
Defeat ensured that Sarri is still searching for his first trophy in Italian football.
Sarri revealed he stayed 'silent' after the match, such was the disappointment at losing, but when quizzed on Ronaldo's below-par showing, the former Chelsea boss had a simple explanation - fitness.
