Police finally take action on Cristiano Ronaldo’s act of knocking on a fan’s phone following Manchester United’s defeat to Everton

Merseyside Police issued a caution to Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo after he smashed a fan’s phone during a Premier League game in April.

Clearly irritated Following Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park last season, Ronaldo smashed a supporter’s phone. 

Under caution, police officers questioned the five-time Ballon d’Or winner about the alleged assault and criminal damage.

Merseyside Police told the Mirror on Wednesday, “We can confirm that a 37-year-old man voluntarily attended and was interviewed under caution in relation to an allegation of assault and criminal damage. The allegation relates to an incident following the Everton v Manchester United football match at Goodison Park on Saturday 9 April.” The statement added, “The matter has been dealt with by way of conditional caution. The matter has now concluded.”

Ronaldo was seen slapping 14-year-old Jacob Harding’s hand towards the ground as he walked off the pitch and into the tunnel at Goodison Park.

Ronaldo reportedly handled the situation later by apologising to the autistic teenager. He also agreed to pay the boy’s family compensation.

Ronaldo issued a statement following the incident, “It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing. Nevertheless, we must always be respectful and patient and set an example for all the youngsters who love the beautiful game.” 

He apologised profusely for his outburst and even invited the Everton fan to watch a game at Old Trafford, which the Everton fan declined.

Ronaldo, who has a year left on his contract at Old Trafford, has expressed a desire to leave the club in order to pursue his dream of winning the Champions League this season.

In the midst of ongoing transfer rumours, the Portuguese legend responded to an Instagram post for the first time on Tuesday. Ronaldo stated,

 “They know the truth when they interview in a couple weeks. The media is telling lies. I have a notebook and in the last few months of the 100 news I made, only 5 were right. Imagine how it is. Stick with that tip.”
