Written by Millennium on March 18, 2019
Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with improper conduct by Uefa for his 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.
