Ronaldo to pay N7.2m to UEFA Over Goal Celebration 

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has fined the Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, 17,700 euros which is equivalent to N7,198,416 for a goal celebration in the win over Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The 34-year-old appeared to mimic Atletico boss Diego Simeone, who turned to fans and grabbed his crotch during his side’s 2-0 first-leg victory.

Ronaldo made the gesture when completing his hat-trick in the return leg as Juventus won 3-0.

Simeone was fined £17,000 for the act.

Juventus have been drawn to play Dutch side Ajax in the quarter-finals.
