Juventus star causes ‘sexism’ controversy after Ronaldo red card

UEFA Champions League UCL results and latest group tables 19 September

Ronaldo was handed a straight red card in the first half for tugging at Valencia defender Jeison Murillo's hair.

It is certain that Ronaldo will miss the next game against Young Boys and his ban could be extended if UEFA chooses to take further disciplinary actions following the report submitted by the match referee.

33-year-old Portuguese footballer received his first red card in the UEFA Champions League.

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be suspended for just one Champions League match after being sent off against Valencia on Wednesday.

It was feared that Ronaldo could be banned for more than one match if the incident was deemed to be violent conduct.

A tearful Ronaldo left the pitch in disbelief but Allegri maintains he would have avoided a red card if UEFA had opted to approve the use of VAR for Europe's premier club tournament. If you're giving that as a red card, you can be sent off for any foul.

And that was a viewpoint endorsed by former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg, who believes the assistant referee stationed behind the goal got the decision wrong.

"I can only say that VAR would have helped the referee make the right decision", Allegri said after the game. He is forgetting it's a group game but he has been brought in to win Juventus the Champions League.

Ronaldo, then, touched his head and asked him to get up.

"It is very severe, I think that if you saw the images, you could see that it is incomprehensible", said the midfielder. There is a possibility that UEFA could hand down a harsher punishment to the player, although it is unlikely they will do so.
