Following Manchester United’s 1: 0 loss to Everton, the Manchester United star lost his cool and crushed the phone of an Everton 14-year-old child, an Everton supporter.
On social media, videos have been circulating claiming that Ronaldo’ smashed the phone’ of an Everton fan. Check out the video below:
The mother of the 14-year-old boy, on the other hand, speaks out about the incident that occurred after the game at Old Trafford. Here’s what she said on Facebook.
She wrote: “Well a lovely game at the match turned into me an Jake with the police. Can’t believe I’m saying this but RONALDO smashed Jakes phone out of his hand while he was recording him coming off at full time. I’m shocked that a professional football can assault a child like this. If anyone can get any videos of this for me I believe their in Instagram already. I’m not on there! Please share!! These football players are thugs! He’s a dad himself how would he feel if this was done to his kid????????”
This has drawn the attention of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has defended his son Cristiano Jr after he was chastised for wearing Adidas and Nike at the same time. After that, Cristiano Ronaldo defended his son, saying :” He wears what he wants and not what you want”.
Cristiano Ronaldo afterwards apologized on his Facebook page for what he did at Goodison Park after the match against Everton and invited the child to see the match at Old Trafford again.
Cristiano Ronaldo wrote: ” “It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing. Nevertheless, 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.🙏🏽”
Manchester United have been made aware of an incident involving Cristiano Ronaldo and what eyewitnesses claim was a mobile phone hitting the ground following his team’s defeat at Goodison Park.
It remains to be seen whether the boy’s mother would take extreme measures and file a criminal complaint against Cristiano Ronaldo, or whether she will let it go.
Fans, on the other hand, are outraged and are urging the boy’s mother to sue Cristiano Ronaldo or purchase him a new phone. They intend to file a petition in which Cristiano Ronaldo will be sued.
