Striker Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly free from any sanction or penalty regarding his statement about the referee, that charged in Dynamo Zagreb vs Real Madrid first match. The news came from Daily Mundo Deportivo, who claims to have spoken to UEFA’s spokesman.
Also reported by Deportivo, the Control and Disciplinary Commitee of UEFA won’t be taking any evaluation of the statement.
The spokesman was sure that Ronaldo’s word are not among the records to evaluate in the continental disciplinary commission, therefore the case won’t be reported to UEFA’s arbitrator.
If this is positive, it means Ronaldo’s presence in Champions League competition is guaranteed. A different situation happened to his coach Mourinho, who received penalties from UEFA for his statement on Champions League last season.
