What Nedved told Ronaldo during VAR check

Juventus Vice-President Pavel Nedved was sure Cristiano Ronaldo was onside and told him to pick up the ball during the VAR check.

The Old Lady talisman scored the 2-2 goal when Giorgio Chiellini extended a cross into his path, converting a header from close range.

But Ronaldo was immediately ruled offside and referee Miachel Fabbri disallowed the goal at once, but was then called by VAR to have another look at the situation.

Juventus Vice-President Nedved then told Ronaldo to pick up the ball while he was waiting for the call from VAR, according to DAZN.

Nedved was convinced the Portugal international was onside and that the goal would be given, and in fact it counted.

But it was not enough to help Juventus turn the game around. The Old Lady were held to a 2-2 draw by Antonio Sanabria’s brace, and thus only picked up one point from the Derby della Mole at the Stadio Grande Torino.
