Ronaldo Fined and Handed a 2 Match Ban by FA
The Football Association reportedly gave Cristiano Ronaldo a £50,000 fine and a two-match suspension for throwing a fan's cellphone on the ground.
After his team's game against Everton at Goodison Park in April, the player for Manchester United was accused of engaging in "improper and/or violent behavior" after appearing to swipe a fan's phone to the ground.
The FA disclosed Ronaldo's sentence on Wednesday along with a thorough written justification for the 37-year-olds punishment.
Ronaldo will be subject to a two-game suspension if he joins a different Premier League team.
After his explosive interview with Piers Morgan on Tuesday night, it was officially announced that Ronaldo and United have mutually decided to end the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's contract.
Ronaldo attacked the squad, previous manager Ralf Rangnick, current manager Erik ten Hag, as well as former colleagues Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville throughout the interview.
In a statement, United said:
“Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect. The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances and wishes him and his family well for the future. Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch.”
