On Saturday, Manchester lost 1-0 to Everton at Goodison Park. After the match, a video of Ronaldo leaving the field went viral. In the video, the spectator appears to extend a hand to Ronaldo. The star appears to respond by striking the spectator’s hand, causing the viewer’s mobile phone to fall to the ground.
Comes with an apology
Just before 22:00 on Saturday, Ronaldo made an official apology via his Instagram account.
It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult situations, like where we are right now. Regardless, we always have to show respect and patience, and set an example for all the young people who love this beautiful game. I want to apologize for my anger. If possible, I would like to invite this fan to watch a game at Old Trafford as a symbol of fair play and sportsmanship.
The Liverpool Echo wrote that Merseyside Police confirmed they were in contact with both Manchester United and Everton after “a boy was assaulted by a player away from home during the match”.
– She gave bruises
The spectator’s mother says that the son sustained bruises after Ronaldo hit his hand. The spectator was a 14-year-old Everton fan.
Mother and son must have been sitting near where the players entered the locker room.
He photographed the United players as they left the field. He took down his phone because Ronaldo took off his socks and was bleeding from his leg, then wanted to see what happened – he didn’t say anything, his mother says.
Ronaldo was in a terrible mood, took the phone out of my son’s hands and continued to walk.
Moreover, the mother says that the son was traumatized after the accident which happened on his first visit to Goodison Park.
– He’s so sad, and that really made him never want to fight again. He had a great day till the last seconds, which really spoiled the day and disgusts us.
– I could understand it if he waved at Ronaldo, but he wasn’t close to his face. He was on the ground to check on Ronaldo’s injury.
After Manchester United lost to Everton, the club’s desire to play the Champions League matches next season hangs in the balance.
