UEFA on Monday opened an examination concerning Cristiano Ronaldo’s objective festival in the wake of scoring a cap trap in Juventus’ Champions League rebound win against Atletico Madrid a week ago.
European football’s overseeing body said Ronaldo was dealing with indictments of “ill-advised direct” after he emulated Diego Simeone’s groin getting ‘cojones’ motion in last Tuesday’s 3-0 win that sent Juventus through 3-2 on total.
In the wake of scoring the conclusive punishment a little ways from time, Ronaldo turned towards the Atletico fans and reproduced Simeone’s motion after the Spaniards’ 2-0 first leg win by getting a handle on his private parts and pushing out his crotch.
A choice will be taken by UEFA on March 21.

Juventus take on Dutch club Ajax in the Champions League quarter-finals more than two legs, on April 10 in Amsterdam and April 16 in Turin.
Mentor Massimiliano Allegri has said he is sure Ronaldo won’t be fined or suspended.
“I think everybody commended their own specific manner on the field and in the stands.
I didn’t see anything peculiar, only a festival. There won’t be a boycott,” said Allegri.
Simeone was fined 20,000 euros ($22,000) by UEFA for his motion.
“He will have perceived how I did it at the Wanda Metropolitano and, similar to me, was endeavoring to demonstrate his character,” said the Argentinian mentor.
Five-time Champions League victor Ronaldo is the record objective scorer in the European challenge with 124 objectives in 160 matches.
