Ronaldo red card to be reviewed by UEFA next week

Ronaldo red card to be reviewed by UEFA next week

Juventus midfielder Emre Can apologised on Thursday after saying "we're not women, let's play football" in response to teammate Cristiano Ronaldo being sent off in the Champions League win at Valencia.

The 33-year-old was dismissed during the first half of the Group H opener in Valencia following an off-the-ball clash with Jeison Murillo.

His case will be dealt with by UEFA's disciplinary body who will decide if his red card at Valencia last night warrants more than a one-game ban.

Juventus would appeal to get Ronaldo's punishment reduced as he could miss a crucial away game at Old Trafford against his old club - Manchester United. I'm positive that we have now turn into stronger, not exclusively due to Ronaldo.

Ronaldo rewrote the history books during his nine-year stay in the Spanish capital, ending his time at the Bernabeu as Madrid's leading all-time scorer with 450 goals in just 438 games.

"I can only say that VAR would have helped the referee make the right decision", Allegri said.

"Therefore, there shouldn't be one and we immediately implement VAR in the Champions League".

The referee did not see the incident that warranted the red card but depended exclusively on the assistance of the goal line official.

"We did not want to sell him, but he wanted to go for personal reasons and we understood that, for all the good things he had done, we had to open the door for him. It was a tactical decision that he would only come on for the last 20 minutes, but that was still enough for him to get injured". Ronaldo, the record goal scorer in the UCL, was reduced to tears on the award of the red while the referee, being human tried to placate Juve with the award of two penalties - the second a very debatable award.

But Mauro Icardi's brilliant late volley brought the hosts level, and Matias Vecino headed in a stoppage-time victor for Inter, back in the Champions League for the first time since 2011-12. Juventus, who were forced to play with 10-man following this incident, won the game as Miralem Pjanic converted twice from the spot-kick to ensure the Old Lady take all 3 points.
