In April, Ronaldo smashed a fan’s phone after a 0-1 defeat against Everton. The Portuguese left the field with a bloody shield in his hands, during the game he received a severe cut on his leg. Leaving the field, the striker knocked the phone out of the hands of one of the fans. Later it turned out that the fan turned out to be a 14-year-old teenager with an autism spectrum disorder.

The child’s mother, Sarah Kelly, said he was shocked and also claimed that he had a bruise on his arm. The police investigated the episode by examining video footage and interviewing witnesses. Its results were not publicly reported. Ronaldo, in turn, apologized for breaking the fan’s phone in anger. Ronaldo later made a donation to I AM, a charity that helps people with autism and their families.

On August 17, it was reported that Ronaldo had received a warning from the Merseyside police for this fan incident. According to Kelly, Ronaldo will pay a £200 fine, meaning he “gets away with it”. She also stated that she intends to sue the football player.

Manchester United on November 22 announced the termination of the contract with 37-year-old Ronaldo by mutual agreement of the parties. His agreement ran until the end of the season.
