Juventus in serious trouble; As Ronaldo likely to get BAN ahead of UCL Clash

According to reports in Express Sport, Former Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly facing a ban from UEFA after he supposedly shouted “sons of b*tches” at Atletico Madrid fans in the Champions League comeback win for his Italian Serie A side Juventus. Cristiano Ronaldo single-handedly kept Juventus’ Champions League quest on course in typical fashion this week as his sensational hat-trick against Atletico Madrid ensured his side’s place in the quarter-finals

Juve had been trailing 2-0 from the first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano and they needed something special in Turin to preserve their chances of winning the European crown.

Ronaldo was picked up on Vamos de Movistar cameras, and Spanish lip-readers claim the 34-year-old was shouting “hijos de puta” (sons of b******).
The superstar could now face a ban from UEFA, especially when paired with his celebration. The Juve star grabbed his crotch, the gesture was likely inspired by a similar move made by Atletico head coach Diego Simeone in his side’s first-leg win over Juve, which the Argentine explained was a message to the fans watching the game that his team had “balls, a lot of balls.”

When asked about Ronaldo’s celebration in the post-game press conference following the second leg, Simeone said: “I’m sure Cristiano made the gesture with the same intention I did, with his people.”

It is unclear whether Ronaldo will receive a ban for his gesture, but he will probably be fined at a minimum. Diego Simeone was fined €20,000 (£17k/$23k) by UEFA after the governing body concluded that his controversial celebration constituted “improper conduct”, but the Atleti coach escaped a touchline ban. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, UEFA is set to Ronaldo’s gesture in the same way they did Simeone’s and a suspension could be warranted if the Juve attacker is found to have goaded Atletico fans. However, if not, the course of action against Ronaldo is likely to be a fine only, as in the case of Simeone.
