The English Football Association (FA) has suspended Christiano Ronaldo for two matches with a fine of £50,000 (equivalent of  N26,653,635.00)  for smashing an Everton supporter’s phone last season.

The FA in a statement released on Wednesday also warned the 37-year old had his contract mutually terminated by Manchester United on Tuesday over his future conduct.

Ronaldo was charged by the FA in September for breaching Rule E3 after footage of the incident emerged following United’s loss to Everton in April.

The announcement on Wednesday is coming less than a month that Erik Ten Hag suggested that Ronaldo would fight the FA ruling

The statement reads;

“Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for two matches, fined £50,000 and warned as to his future conduct for a breach of FA Rule E3.

“The forward admitted that his conduct after the final whistle of the Premier League game between Manchester United and Everton on Saturday 9 April 2022 was improper.

“An independent Regulatory Commission found that his conduct was both improper and violent during a subsequent hearing, and imposed these sanctions.”

Consequently, the sanctions on Ronaldo will reportedly be valid to any new club he joins, even if it is outside of England.

Meanwhile he had earlier issued an apology on Instagram at the time, stating: “It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing.

“Nevertheless, we always have to be respectful, patient and set the example for all the youngsters who love the beautiful game.

“I would like to apologise for my outburst and, if possible, I would like to invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a sign of fair play and sportsmanship.” The post reads
