Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with “improper and/or violent conduct” following an incident which took place after Manchester United’s fixture at Everton back in April.

United were beaten 1-0 at Goodison Park and when leaving the pitch at full-time, Ronaldo appeared to grab a phone from an Everton supporters’ hand and throw it to the ground.

The 37-year-old has subsequently been charged with breaching FA Rule E3.

If found guilty, Ronaldo is likely to face a fine and possibly a suspension.

A short statement from United read: “We note the FA announcement in relation to Cristiano Ronaldo. We will be supporting the player in his response to the charge.”
