Cristiano Ronaldo has received a whole lot of criticism after he didn't step up to take a penalty in the Coppa Italia final shoot-out defeat to Napoli.

Despite seeing a spot-kick saved in his return to action in the semi-final against AC Milan, Ronaldo is comfortably Juventus' best penalty taker and is normally immune to pressure in the big moments.

But the five-time Ballon d'Or winner didn't even get to take one last night.

Both Paulo Dybala and Danilo missed from 12 yards while Napoli scored all four through Lorenzo Insigne, Matteo Politano, Nikola Maksimovic and Arkadiusz Milik - the latter putting away the winner to secure Gennaro Gattuso's first trophy.
And many believe Ronaldo didn't take a penalty because he wanted to be fifth on the list and ultimately the hero - something which has happened in the past.
Juventus had won the Coppa Italia three years in a row prior to Ronaldo's arrival, while Napoli's win brought a first trophy in six seasons at the San Paolo.

Is it fair grounds to criticise Ronaldo or is reaching a bit?

Sound off in the comments.

You can't please everyone. People like that should simply be ignored
If he had taken the first or second penalty, then Dybala and Danilo lost theirs eventually, people would still talk


He lost his last penalty and was probably not confident enough.
Also the last penalty is very decisive too because of tensions


Another thing people forget is teams don't just go out there and do whatever they like. Something must have happened in the training or maybe the coach's instructions


PS; All this is not a defense for Ronaldo. Juve and Cr7 were lacklustre yesterday.

To me, Sarri is clueless!

Of course Ronaldo is the most selfish footballer ever. He doesn't contribute to team play, always waiting for tap-in and penalty, let's not forget that he blames his teammates when things go bad.

The only reason he keeps jumping from one club to another is because of his selfish aims,he wants to prove that he can do it all without his teammates which is no true.

crazy banters meen...but they are kinda right shaa...its funny how the cr7 fans that was once singing new challenge are now shifting the blame to sarri the coach forgetting that sarri is technically miles ahead of zidane that did wonders in madrid and also better than gattuso that failed in mailan and was dumped and sill lead napoli to win juve...the earlier u realize dt football is more of a team work and a bit of luck is needed....the better for u guys...all i saw yesterday was a bad day in office for juve, Napoli looked more hungry and determined for that cup and congrats to the best team...

English FA is trying to start what they can not finish...................... From writing an inscription of "black lives matter" (a political inscription of a far left U.S Democrat) at the back of players jersey to forcing all players to take a knee (a political symbol), ..... According to FIFA law, political symbol and messages no matter how good it is should never be mixed with football, neither should any political message nor symbol be written on players jersey, that football belongs to all irrespective of your side of opinion.

It would have been better for English FA to used "say no to racism" than for them to use "black lives matter" (a political message) in premier league,....... Infact it would have been so perfect if the NHS was written in place of "black lives matter" in order to pay tribute to doctors who are currently at the Frontline saving lives of others and losing their own lives .............. Also it would have been much better for them to say that taking a knee should be optional rather than being compulsory for all players............. mixing football with politics is a very dangerous acts.............. infact FA should immidiately apologize for banning the use of poppy (a figure that seeks to honour world war 2 fallen hero soldiers) on players jerseys, because it is also for a noble cause ............................................. I wouldn't be surprised if players from now henceforth start to displays political figures and messages about various oppressive regime and evil act committed by their various government in their singlet and displaying them during matches (they will be justified in doing so, because it is also about a noble cause of freedom)......... I hope this will not bring about double standard, since political freedom messages can be express, I believe that no one should be denied freedom of expressing his own freedom political message.
And forcing everyone to kneel irrespective of their opinion is bad for a global fundamental human rights of freedom of taught and expression................... Football is a game for all (whether white, black, brown, purple etc) and the message displayed should be inclusive to all races,... Not pitting one race against another.............. AS FOR ME, "all lives matter"

Most strikers can be selfish at times. What is more important is their scoring percentage. Ronaldo has a 99.9% cool

Penalties can go either way. Even if Ronaldo takes the first penalty, it's not enough to guarantee victory for his side, since others will still take theirs. There is no guarantee that anytime he takes one, he will score....these guys are humans abeg
