Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for two matches and fined 50,000 pounds by the English Football Association for an incident involving a football fan a few months ago. Ronaldo had knocked a mobile phone out of the hands of a supporter as he left the pitch following Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to Everton.
“Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for two matches, fined £50,000 and warned as to his future conduct for a breach of FA Rule E3.The forward admitted that his conduct after the final whistle of the Premier League game between Manchester United FC and Everton FC on Saturday 9 April 2022 was improper. An independent Regulatory Commission found that his conduct was both improper and violent during a subsequent hearing, and imposed these sanctions. The independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons for these decisions can be seen below,” a release on the FA website stated.
The action from the FA comes a day after Ronaldo and Manchester United decided to part ways with “mutual consent”. The end of Ronaldo’s second spell comes a few days after his explosive interview with journalist Piers Morgan, where he spoke ill of the club, its owners and coach Erik Ten Hag.
