Cristiano Ronaldo fined, suspended for two games for incident with fan
Cristiano Ronaldo, a star striker and former Manchester United player, received a two-match suspension and a £50,000 fine.
Cristiano Ronaldo, a star striker and former Manchester United player, received a two-match suspension and a £50,000 fine for knocking a fan's phone out of their hand in Everton earlier this year.
Following Manchester United's announcement of his release from the contract on Tuesday, the 37-year-old is currently a free agent. He got into a fight on April 9 of this year following his team's 1-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park. According to Sky Sports, Merseyside Police warned him.
Also accusing him of inappropriate behaviour is FA. He received the suspension and penalty from a neutral panel. The forward acknowledged that his actions weren't appropriate as well. When the star striker joins a club, regardless of which nation, the ban will be carried over and will not apply during the World Cup.
Ronaldo apologised on Instagram after the incident, writing, "It is never easy to cope with emotions in trying circumstances like the one we are facing."
However, we must constantly show patience, respect, and lead by example for all the young people who enjoy the wonderful game.
As a gesture of fair play and sportsmanship, I would like to apologise for my outburst and, if it is feasible, invite this fan to watch a game at Old Trafford. Ronaldo agreed to the FA's charge but asked for a private hearing instead of a ban.
In Qatar, where the 2022 FIFA World Cup is being held, the Portuguese superstar is taking part. On Thursday, his squad will play Ghana in the tournament's opening match.
