A freak out now has an aftermath for Cristiano Ronaldo. After the 1-0 defeat, “CR7” let his anger run wild. Photos and videos have been shared on social media where the Portuguese slapped the phone out of a fan’s hand as he left the pitch at Goodison Park. Now the police have initiated investigations against the superstar. Ronaldo himself is to be interrogated. This was confirmed by the Liverpool police on Sunday.
The scene is documented in several photos on social media. According to a statement reported by the British media on Sunday, the responsible Merseyside Police want to speak to all parties involved.
Ronaldo has since apologized to the affected supporter and asked for forgiveness. “I would like to apologize for my freak out and – if possible – invite the fan to attend a game at Old Trafford,” said the attacker via Instagram. He sees his apology as a “sign of fair play and sportsmanship”. Manchester United also want to investigate the incident. As seventh in the table, the record champion threatens to miss out on the Champions League places for the coming season.
