Former player Antonio Cassano continues to tell it as he sees it. During his playing career, he earned fame for his indiscipline and now in retirement, he's still making headlines for his comments.

Speaking to Tiki Taka, he spoken about the relationship between Cristiano Ronaldo and his coach, Sarri, suggesting that Juventus have a big problem. 

"I think Ronaldo has a big problem with Sarri," Cassano told Tiki Taka. "Everything started with the two consecutive substitutions, which would irritate any player.

"In my opinion, there’s a problem between them and Juventus have succeeded in playing it down."

Ronaldo, 34, has not been in top form this season. He has scored six goals in the league, three of which were penalties, and will not be at Monday's Ballon d'Or ceremony where he is expected to finish fourth. 

Juve were held to a surprising 2-2 draw by Sassuolo on Sunday and lost top spot to Inter Milan. Errors were made by summer signing Matthijs de Ligt and veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. 

However, Cassano defended Buffon: "He should play because he remains a better option than Szczesny.

"He was always benched at Arsenal and was a backup to [Manuel] Almunia and [Lukasz] Fabianski. At Roma he had a good year, while now he is in his first year as a starter.

"Anyway, right before Gigi’s mistake, it needs to be said that [Matthijs] De Ligt made yet another mistake."
