Cristiano Ronaldo has come under scrutiny after his actions got him in trouble at Goodison Park after the game against Everton. Manchester United faced an embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Everton who sit 17th in the league standings. This defeat puts Manchester United further below in the fight for top 4. Manchester United currently sit 7th in the standings and their fate is out of their own hands. They are dependent on Arsenal and Spurs to drop points to have any chance of making it to the Top 4.
Cristiano Ronaldo smashed an Everton fan’s phone as he was making his way to the tunnel. The video soon went viral on social media and Ronaldo has been under fire since. Merseyside police have continued investigation on the alleged assault and a spokesperson from Merseyside police said:
“We can confirm that they’re carrying out an investigating following an incident at the #EVEMAN match at Goodison involving a player as they were walking off the pitch and will be speaking to all parties involved.”
Cristiano Ronaldo also apologized for his actions as he wrote on Instagram:
“It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing, Neverthelesss, we always have to be respectful patient and set the example for all the youngsters who love the beautiful game.”
“I would like to apologize for my outburst and if possible I would like to invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a sign of fair-play and sportsmanship.”
The investigations on the matter are still going on but English newspaper SUN has reported that Manchester United have accepted Cristiano Ronaldo’s apology and he won’t face any further penalty from the incident. Cristiano Ronaldo will be available for selection in Manchester United’s upcoming game against Norwich on Saturday.
