Ronaldo could not believe his side's failure to go through

Former Real Madrid man Ronaldo bagged both the Old Lady's goals but they came up agonisingly short.

The Bianconeri failed to overturn the 1-0 deficit they had coming into the game after defeat in the first leg in France.

A soft early penalty converted by Memphis Depay's panenka proved to be the decisive away goal as Ronaldo's brace - including his own goal from the spot - went in vain.

Ronaldo was seen in tears at the final whistle and his sister Elma had a pop at his colleagues on Instagram, while defending her bro.

She wrote: "You did better than anyone! I am proud to see you play.

"And to see your dedication but unfortunately alone you cannot do everything moreover it is impossible!!!!!!

"You know football is like that, but you also have to think you did your best and you're still the best."

It is not the first time one of Ronaldo's sisters has hit out at footballers.

The star's sibling Katia slammed Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk for a tongue-in-cheek comment he made about Ronaldo's absence from the Ballon d'Or ceremony in December.

The Champions League failure proved to be the final straw for boss Maurizio Sarri as he was unceremoniously given the boot after just one season in Turin.

The former Chelsea manager led Juventus to their ninth consecutive Serie A title but incredibly it was not enough to hang onto his job.

World Cup winner Andrea Pirlo is Sarri's shock replacement - the Italian legend taking the job just nine days after he was put in charge of the Under-23s.
