Cristiano Ronaldo 'got a bullseye': Chievo keeper Stefano Sorrentino jokes about injury
Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino joked that Cristiano Ronaldo found his mark on Sunday, despite not scoring a goal against him.
Sorrentino, 39, was temporarily knocked out after a collision with Ronaldo in the final moments of the 3-2 defeat to Juventus, which saw him replaced by Andrea Seculin.
The goalkeeper was released from hospital on Sunday morning after reportedly sustaining a fractured nose, whiplash and a bruised left shoulder. But he was in jovial mood on social media.
"THANK YOU for all your messages of affection and respect," Sorrentino posted on Twitter.
GRAZIE per i vostri messaggi di vicinanza, affetto e stima. Siamo un gruppo fantastico e ieri abbiamo sfiorato l'impresa: mentre CR7 mi ha preso in pieno! 😂😂😂😂😂😂 #ChievoJuve pic.twitter.com/gVZ9uU6YL5— Stefano Sorrentino (@Sorrentino) August 19, 2018
"We are a fantastic squad and yesterday we had a brush with greatness: meanwhile, CR7 didn't so much brush me as get a bullseye!"
Meanwhile, Paulo Dybala apologised for celebrating Juventus' goal with captain Giorgio Chiellini while Sorrentino was unconscious, before the VAR ruled it out.
Dybala responded to a comment on his Instagram saying: "You're right! I didn't realise what was happening at that moment. I was wrong."
