Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo to face FA hearing over Everton charge

October 11, 2022

Man United striker Cristiano Ronaldo was charged by the FA last month in relation to an incident that happened last season.

The outcome of Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo’s improper conduct charge will be determined by a Football Association hearing, it has been confirmed.

The 37-year-old is reported to have responded to the FA’s charge of breaching rule E3, which relates to improper and/or violent conduct. It relates to an incident which occurred following United’s 1-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park back in April earlier this year.

United issued a response, saying: “We note the FA announcement in relation to Cristiano Ronaldo. We will be supporting the player in his response to the charge.”

Under FA ruling the case must go to a hearing. However, witnesses are allowed to submit written evidence.
