Cristiano Ronaldo Charged By UEFA For ‘Cojones’ Celebration

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo is facing disciplinary action after his “cojones” celebration in Juventus’ 3-0 win against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Ronaldo mimicked Atletico Madrid’s manager, Simeone’s celebration by grabbing his crotch after scoring his hat-trick to qualify his team for the quarter-final of the Champion’s League.

UEFA has now charged Ronaldio with “improper conduct” and could potentially miss his team’s Champion’s League first leg tie against Ajax.

UEFA had also charged Simeone for the same celebration, but the Argentine escaped with just a fine of 20,000 euros ($22,700)

UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will hear the case at its next meeting on March 21
