The Football Association has been charged Cristiano Ronaldo with “improper and/or violent conduct” following an incidence which took place after Manchester United’s fixture at Everton back in April.
Manchester United were beaten at Goodison Park and when leaving the pitch at full-time, Ronaldo appeared to have grabbed a phone from an Everton supporters’ hand and smashed the device on the ground as he was leaving the field.
The 37-year-old has subsequently been charged with breaching FA Rule E3 while releasing a statement in which it claimed that the forward had engaged in improper or violent behavior following the final whistle of United game against Everton.
If found guilty, Ronaldo is likely to face a fine and possibly a suspension however Manchester United said they would give full support to Cristiano Ronaldo in his response to the charge.
“We note the FA announcement in relation to Cristiano Ronaldo. We will be supporting the player in his response to the charge.”
