The international of Portugal was shown a pretty red card in Juventus’ 2-0 win over Valencia. The red card was shown to him when he was seen pulling hairs of opposite team’s player. Here is the detailed description of the event. Owen Hargreaves has spelled out the red card of Cristiano Ronald in Juventus’ 2-0 win over Valencia in the Champions League.

The international debut of Portugal with the old lady was nothing short of a disaster after he was sent out during the match on 29 minutes just. It was not clear what had happened at the start when Ronaldo apparently clashed with Jeison Murillo from the ball and away from the referee. Replays showed that there was a small blend between the two players, but Ronaldo did not seem to push out his rival with his hand or head.

However, he seemed to pull the hair of Murillo, and the whole thing was spotted by the linesman. The officer exited the referee to finish the evening off Ronaldo early, and the international of Portugal was forced to leave the court in tears. He left the court with a sad note.

Hargreaves discussed the red card and the reaction of Ronaldo to that at BT Sport after the match. And it seems that the former Bayern Munich midfielder was surprised by his emotional reaction to it. And yet he was really ruined not to get the chance to play all Juventus first group games in the 2018/19 campaign. “I think it just shows how much he cares,” explained Hargreaves. “Even for a moment like that, all he has won and how much it will hurt him not to end the game.”
