Gary Lineker says Maurizio Sarri's decision to substitute Cristiano Ronaldo against AC Milan was a gamble but ultimately paid off.

After Dybala's winning goal, Lineker said: 'Dybala who came on for Ronaldo scores the only goal of the game,' followed by: 'Sarri-ballsy', a play on the coined phrase 'Sarri-ball', which refers to the Italian's style of football.

Match of the Day presenter Lineker took to social media when Sarri withdrew the Portugal star, writing: 'Sarri substitutes Ronaldo for the 2nd time and he marches past him straight down the tunnel.

But former Chelsea boss Sarri made the decision to take top scorer Ronaldo off and replace the forward with Paulo Dybala after 55 minutes.

With the game still goalless after half time, Juve had struggled to create clear cut chances and looked like they would drop two points in their pursuit of Inter Milan at the top of Serie A.

The result means Juve move back to the top of the table on 32 points, a point ahead of Inter who are also managed by a former Chelsea manager in Antonio Conte.

Got to say, he’s a ballsy bugger is Sarri.'
