‘He will…’: Manchester United manager’s update on Cristiano Ronaldo’s FA charge


With the FA’s Cristiano Ronaldo being accused of inappropriate behaviour, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag gave a comprehensive update on the situation, revealing that the Portuguese star ‘will not accept it’. Ronaldo was charged with an incident last season during United’s 0-1 defeat at Goodison Park on April 9. The former Real Madrid man was on his way to the tunnel when he slammed a young Everton fan’s mobile phone on the ground.

The Dutch coach told reporters on Wednesday that he has already spoken to Ronaldo about it and that he will challenge the FA charges. “We’ve talked about it and he won’t accept it.”

In September, the FA said in their statement: “Rules and Discipline Update: Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with breaching FA rule E3 for an incident that took place after Manchester United FC’s Premier League game against Everton FC on Saturday 9 April 2022 .”

“It is alleged that the attacker’s behavior after the final whistle was inappropriate and/or violent,” the statement said.

After the incident last season, Ronaldo also issued an apology on Instagram saying that “it is never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments”.

“It is never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments like the ones we face. Nevertheless, we must always be respectful and patient and set the example for all young people who love the beautiful game. I want 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”.

Ronaldo found some form on Sunday, scoring in United’s 2-1 win over Everton in the Premier League. United are currently fifth in the Premier League standings with 15 points from eight games. United will face Omonia in the Europa League on Friday for their upcoming game.
