Cristiano Ronaldo Banned For First Two Games
Cristiano Ronaldo was given a suspension by the Football Association following an incident involving a fan's phone, and he will miss his first two games with his next club.
After Manchester United's match against Everton in April, Ronaldo appeared to knock a phone out of the hand of a young fan and was issued a police caution.
After it was revealed on Tuesday that Ronaldo had left Old Trafford, the FA also issued a sanction that will affect his upcoming two domestic games. Any nation subject to FIFA regulations would be subject to the ban.
The FA said in a statement on Wednesday that "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."
Following Ronaldo's interview with Piers Morgan, in which the 37-year-old Ronaldo, criticized the club and manager Erik ten Hag, United declared that they had "mutually" terminated Ronaldo's contract.
He is free to participate in the World Cup in Qatar for Portugal.
