Christiano Ronaldo has been slammed with a fine of £50,000 by the English Football Association alongside a two-match ban for improper behavior towards a fan. This was after the Portuguese was charged with violence following an incident in April when smashed a fan’s phone at Goodison Park after Man United lost to Everton in April. An FA statement said: “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.”
This development is coming barely after 24 hours after the five-time Ballon d’Or winner had his contract with Manchester United terminated by mutual consent following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan where he carpeted the club and manager of the club, Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo said the club had remained stagnant since Sir Alex Ferguson left back in 2013, adding that there was no growth whatsoever. He also said he had no respect for Ten Hag cause the manager had no respect for him.
The former Manchester United striker posted a statement of goodbye to the club where he is regarded as a Legend.
“Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early. “I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge. “I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.”
Ronaldo is presently in Qatar preparing for Portugal’s World Cup opening match against Ghana on Thursday
