Referee says Cristiano Ronaldo shouldn't have been sent off

Emre Can

UEFA rules dictate that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor must serve an automatic one-game ban with no right to appeal - ruling him out of Juve's clash with Young Boys on October 2 - although the automatic three-match suspension imposed for violent conduct in the Premier League does not apply in the Champions League.

Interestingly, the Portuguese was flashed a red card after he appeared to have pulled Valencia defender Jeison Murillo by the hair during Wednesday night's clash.

Reacting emotionally to the referee's decision, Ronaldo fell on the ground in disbelief and left the pitch with teary eyes and frustration.

Monster typhoon slams into Philippines
Preparation and evacuation procedures have improved since Super Typhoon Haiyan in 2013 which killed more than 7,000 people. Storm warnings have been raised in 25 provinces across the main northern island of Luzon, restricting sea and air travel.

This was Ronaldo's 11th red card, but first in the Champions League, with a suspension now set to reduce his scoring power in the group stages.

Ronaldo's case will be heard by UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on September 27. He won the first of his five Champions League titles while with United in 2008.

The reported punishment means Ronaldo will miss Juventus' home game against Young Boys on October 2 but will be available to face former club Manchester United on October 23 at Old Trafford. Juventus would also be allowed to appeal. "Come on, we're not women", Can told DAZN, leading to accusations of sexism and even calls for a ban on his social media account.

The focus on diversity became ironic as the night wore on, with one white person after another delivering acceptance speeches. Then he set up his joke explaining, "She said she doesn't watch white award shows because you guys don't thank Jesus enough".

"It's very harsh. I think if you have seen the pictures, you'll have seen that it's incomprehensible", Matuidi said.

Juventus manager Max Allegri is adamant that the decision would have been overturned had VAR been available to consult in the Old Lady's Group H opener.

"Ronaldo was angry, of course".
