Earlier Today, UEFA declared that Ronaldo has been fined €20K for his goal celebration after the Champions League game against Atletico Madrid, impersonating Diego Simeone from the first leg.

During the investigation was opened into the matter by UEFA, however, they precluded a ban for the Portuguese star. In any case, from the begin, unmistakably Ronaldo wouldn’t get a ban, however, this isn’t an issue of standards, but instead circumstances.

All things considered, the danger of suspension is dependably there when doing such activities, and at last, that could finish up being expensive. Simply take a gander at Nedved in 2003, who missed the UCL last against Milan due to a yellow card. Despite the fact that the guidelines have changed since with respect to yellow cards, it’s not worth the danger of getting prohibited in light of an outside motion.

Moreover, it’s inappropriate to state that Ronaldo’s gesture is equivalent to Simeone’s, on the grounds that is not the situation. To clear up, the Atleti coach swung to his own fans while doing the motion, to demonstrate that his group has the traits, refuting his fans in the event that you wish. An awful demonstration, maybe, yet not incitement.

Ronaldo, then again, didn’t swing to his own fans, but rather the Atleti fans. Hence, the celebrations get a totally extraordinary significance meaning from that of Simeone.
