For a gesture of humor that dates back more than five months, Cristiano Ronaldo could receive a sanction from the English federation that accuses him of “violent or inappropriate” conduct.

Definitely, Cristiano Ronaldo’s season at Manchester United seems like a crossroads. At odds with his management and his coach due to his inclinations to leave during the transfer window, he never earned a full starting job in the eyes of Erik Ten Hag. Starting only once in six Premier League games, it is rather in the Europa League where he accumulates playing time. It was also in the Red Devils’ last European match, on the pitch of Sherif Tiraspol in Moldova, that he converted a penalty and thus confirmed his first goal of the season with MU.

An ephemeral slimming in the sky of the quintuple Ballon d’Or. Currently training with Portugal, which must play its last two Nations League games during this international window, CR7 received very bad news from England this Friday. Through a press release, the federation (FA) accuses him of having “violent or inappropriate” behavior after the final whistle of the Everton-Manchester United match on April 9 in the Premier League that ended in a defeat for the Mancunians at Goodison Park (1-0). Yellow carded for unsportsmanlike conduct late in the match (87), the Portuguese even added a layer later.

A sanction more than five months later?

Going to the changing rooms high-fived a young Toffees fan and knocked out his phone.

Taken very seriously, this case prompted the opening of an investigation by Liverpool police, who were ultimately content to issue a legal reminder to the player. However, in the football landscape, Cristiano Ronaldo could receive an FA suspension several months later.
