Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for two matches and fined £50,000 by FA for hitting a mobile phone out of a fan’s hand at Everton.
Following an incident that occurred in April when Ronaldo smashed a fan’s phone at Goodison Park after Man United lost to Everton last season, the FA have now concluded their investigation and handed Ronaldo his punishment.
This development is coming barely after 24 hours his contract with Manchester United was terminated by mutual consent following his explosive interview where he carpeted the club.
Also the ban means that Ronaldo would be suspended for two games if he joins another Premier League club, with Chelsea and Newcastle both linked with a move for the 37-year-old.
However, Ronaldo is presently in Qatar preparing for Portugal’s World Cup opening match against Ghana on Thursday.
