Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister Elma Aveiro has taken aim at Maurizio Sarri after Juventus lost the Coppa Italia final against Napoli on penalties.
Gennaro Gattuso’s side triumphed after a goalless 90 minutes in which Sarri’s men struggled to carve out any clear chances, while Napoli were unlucky not to score a winner late in the game.
The defeat was the first time Ronaldo has ever lost consecutive finals in his career with the Portugal forward criticised for his performance by Luca Toni.
Elma has however leaped to her brother’s defence on social media as she seemingly slammed Sarri’s tactics and pleaded for Ronaldo’s Juventus teammates to step up.
“What more can you do? My love, you can’t do miracles on your own,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I can’t understand how you can play like that. Anyway, keep your head up, you can’t do anymore.”
