Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus Forward Charged By Uefa Over Celebration

This was the first time in 13 years that Juventus progressed in a Champions League knockout match after losing the first leg

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with improper conduct by Uefa for a goal celebration in the win over Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The 34-year-old appeared to mimic Atletico boss Diego Simeone, who turned to fans and grabbed his crotch during his side’s 2-0 first-leg victory.

Ronaldo made the gesture after his third goal of his hat-trick in the return leg as Juventus won 3-0.

Uefa will rule on the case on 21 March.

Simeone was fined 20,000 euros (£17,000) for his celebration.


Juventus have been drawn to play Dutch side Ajax in the quarter-finals.
