Ronaldo reacts to Sarri’s sack by Juventus

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo has stressed on the importance of “critical thinking” in the wake of Juventus’ Champions League exit and the sacking of Maurizio Sarri. Ronaldo netted a brace on Friday night to give Juve a 2-1 win over Lyon in Turin, but it was not enough to prevent them crashing out in the last-16 stage on away goals after a 2-2 aggregate draw.Advertisement Sarri guided Juve to a ninth Serie A title in a row, but defeat to Napoli in the Coppa Italia final and a failure to instill his playing style on the squad led to doubts about his suitability for the job.Interestngly, Andrea Pirlo, who was only appointed coach of the Juventus under-23 team last month, has since been appointed to take charge at the Allianz Stadium.Ronaldo urged everyone at Juve to use the short off-season for “critical thinking” so that they can return to satisfy fans’ expectations.Although he did not mention Sarri or Pirlo specifically, the Portugese star hammered on the now need to get things right at Juventus.“The 2019-20 season is over for us, much later than usual but yet sooner than we expected,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.“Now it’s time for reflection, time to analyse the ups and downs because critical thinking is the only way to improve.“A huge club such as Juventus must always think like the best in the world, work like the best in the world, so that we can call ourselves one of the best and biggest clubs in the world.“Winning the Serie A once again in such a difficult year is something that we are very proud of. Personally, scoring 37 goals for Juventus and 11 for the Portuguese national team is something that makes me face the future with renewed ambition and desire to keep doing better and better each year. On Saturday, the Bianconeri sent head coach Sarri packing barely a year after he was appointed after his exit from Chelsea.

Local, state prosecutors say there’s not enough evidence to support criminal charges in Mason City schools special investigation

first_imgMASON CITY — Local and state prosecutors say no criminal charges will be filed over the case of improper disbursements to current and former staff of the Mason City Community School District.A special investigative report by the State Auditor’s Office showed over $2.2 million was not properly disbursed to 66 school district employees during an eight-year period between July 2009 and August 2017. Then-State Auditor Mary Mosiman said at the time of the report’s release last December that former superintendent Anita Micich approved the improper disbursements without school board approval.Cerro Gordo County Attorney Carlyle Dalen in a written statement released on Wednesday says his office with the assistance of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation conducted a criminal review with the goal of assessing whether criminal charges would be appropriate in the case. Dalen says due to the sensitive nature of the case, his office also requested a second review by the Iowa Attorney General’s Office. The Attorney General’s Area Prosecution Division independently reviewed the case and determined that there was insufficient evidence to support any criminal charges concerning the matter.Dalen says the decision not to prosecute is purely a review for criminal violations and has no impact on civil remedies that may be available to the school district.last_img read more
