Cristiano Ronaldo fined by UEFA for ‘cojones’ celebration
Cristiano Ronaldo has been fined €20,000 ($22,700) by UEFA for his “cojones” celebration during Juventus’ last-16 Champions League victory over Atletico Madrid.
Ronaldo’s fine was the same amount imposed on Simeone for his “obscene” celebration during Atleti’s 2-0 victory in Madrid.
Ronaldo’s celebration came after he had scored a late penalty to secure his hat-trick and Juventus’ passage through to the quarterfinals on aggregate.
The Portugal captain will face Ukraine and Serbia in the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers after receiving his first international call-up since the 2018 World Cup.
