FA Charges Cristiano Ronaldo For Improper And Violent Conduct

Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been charged with “improper and/or violent conduct” in connection with an incident in which he seemed to have knocked a fan’s phone out of his hand.

The incident took place at Goodison Park following Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to Everton in April of last year.

A viral video on social media showed the Portugal international appearing to knock a young fan’s phone out of his hand as he walked off the field and into the tunnel.

Police issued a warning to Ronaldo over the incident in August, and he later apologized to Jacob Harding, 14, on his Instagram account, stating that his feelings after such a negative outcome had gotten the better of him.

The FA has now charged Ronaldo for his misconduct, revealed in a statement released on Friday, September 23rd.

The statement read, “Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3 for an incident that took place after Manchester United’s Premier League match against Everton FC on Saturday 9 April 2022.

“It is alleged that the forward’s conduct after the final whistle was improper and/or violent.”

However, in reaction to the charge, Manchester United has declared that they will back their player.

The club said in a statement, “We note the FA announcement in relation to Cristiano Ronaldo. We will be supporting the player in response to the charge.”

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
